Are you a student, postdoc researcher, university lecturer, healthcare professional or technician at Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research, Utrecht University or University Medical Centre Utrecht? And do you want to collaborate with professionals from other disciplines? i4CS’s educational programme aims to provide courses for people like you. Integral thinking and effective cooperation with other disciplines are paramount in this programme.
Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research, Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht are preparing their students and professionals for the future. They will increasingly be called upon to solve complex challenges in our society. This strategic alliance brings together students from different institutions and disciplines.
The academics of the future are learning to combine disciplinary knowledge and expertise with a broad range of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge and skills. This enables them to work and communicate with colleagues from other disciplines and with partners outside academia in complex and diverse contexts.
EduXchange. Together, the institutions create innovative educational programmes to engage students and professionals in shaping the future and tackling major societal challenges in the areas of energy, health, circular economy and nutrition. Students of Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research or Utrecht University can use the EduXchange platform to take courses at any of those institutions. The platform removes administrative barriers, so the students themselves can enrol in a straightforward way.
Challenge Based Learning. The alliance is committed to new forms of education, including Challenge Based Learning. In this context, students from the various institutions and from different disciplines work together on existing social issues.
Summer School. Summer schools, open to international students, will be organized. Summer school courses are organized in the summer holiday period, and are meant to broaden the participants’ circular horizon.
Master Program. We work closely together with the EWUU Education team in working towards an integral EWUU Circular Society master program which is planned for 2025.
