Advanced Mobility: Implementing High-Tech Mobility Solutions
You learn about business strategy. How to use the stage-gate model to control quality. Track and flag legal issues. ICT supply chain management. Human-machine interface systems. The aim? To keep up with tomorrow’s mobility and even exceed expectations.
The program in a nutshell
As an automotive professional, this exchange program deepens your skills and knowledge. It’s offered once a year: September to January.
You work in teams. Each team has its own assignment, given by one of our partner companies. You get immediate use out of the information you learn; mobility technology and mechatronics.
The first half of the semester revolves mostly around classroom time and excursions. The second half is where you work mostly on the group project. You need to be available from Monday to Friday from 9:00 - 17:45. So taking on a part-time job or other subjects won’t cut it.

Dutch way of learning
The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.

What about credits and grading?
At HAN we use the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, or ECTS. It’s the standard credit system used in higher education across Europe. How does it work? One credit = 28 hours of study. Think of contact hours. Time spent working on assignments. Preparing for exams.
One semester = 30 credits = 840 hours of study. To earn credits, you need to pass your exams. What counts as a pass? A grade of at least 5.5.
