Scripting for Designers

This short program is a crash course for learning the finer points of script writing and programming. You learn to use JavaScript. How to utilize an Arduino microcomputer. Build a framework and programming language. You’re ready to go in a few short weeks!

The program in a nutshell

Your classes and workshops take place Monday through Friday. You get a feel for technical and programming skills. Brush up on (or learn) JavaScript. Learn to use an Arduino microcomputer. And how to attach sensors, motors, LEDs, displays and other peripherals to it. Workshops teach you how to put theory into practice.

You deliver 2 projects during this program. For the 1st project, you and your classmates split up into groups of 3. You document how you learn a new programming language. The 2nd project sees you all split into groups of 5. Now you design and create a working prototype script.

Students as partners

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.
