MCT (Media and communications technology) is a study traject at Howest. This traject focuses on all IoT areas.

We study subjects as:

  • Electronics
  • Data Science
  • Datamanagement
  • Programming in Python
  • AI (only some specializations)
  • Computer Networks

After 3 semesters each student chooses its own specialization:

  • Web & app Developer
  • Smart Tech & AI
  • Infrastructure Engineer
  • AI Engineer

Besides theory sessions, Howest is known to strongly emphasise practical classes. At the end of each semester student are having project weeks, where they need to utilise all of their new skills in a real life scenario. Starting from 3rd semester, students work with real clients to solve their sometimes complex cases.


My specialization is Web & app Developer, we learn how to communicate with people in a secure, fast and efficient way. We achive this by creating websites with an eye for detail, an intuitive interface, a secure and scalable backend.
At Howest we always learn the newest technologies to create what we are passionate about. Working in a team is second nature to us.
