For you?

At The Hague University of Applied Sciences we believe that our current fast changing world requires engineers and IT specialists who are prepared to look at problems from different perspectives and who have learnt to collaborate with professionals from other disciplines.

The EPS is a great way to develop these important skills. The number of successful EPS projects have therefore increased in the past years. We offer five EPS projects, at two different faculties.   

Admission requirements


Your application starts with a nomination from your home university. Depending on the project you choose, your university nominates you for either the Faculty of IT&Design of for TIS.
