It is vital students become familiar with the way the business works

Why Partners in Education?

Businesses show students what it's like in the professional field.

Fontys School of ICT

We have been working together with the business community for over fifteen years. This enables us to provide innovative and inspiring education. This cooperation we consider serious commitment. By involving companies intensely in education, the curriculum becomes more impactful for both students and teachers. And ultimately also for the business community. We are very proud of this successful cooperation format with more than 150 partners, and we would like to share with you how we involve the professional field in education and research.

All our partners

Connecting education directly to the professional field.

For Fontys Information and Communication Technology, helping a student develop into a professional for the labour market is key. We want students to enter the professional field well prepared after their education, able to apply theory directly into practice. Nobody can support this better than the business community itself. Therefore, from the start of their studies on, our students work together with the field.
