What is BILL?
It’s not a school, it’s not a company, it is BILL. At BILL you are going to solve real life challenges from organizations in mixed student groups from engineering, logistics and business. You will develop competencies while working on these challenges, this process is guided by the coaches of the BILL team. Companies and research groups are actively involved in solving these challenges and are part of the projects. The projects we run at BILL can be of all shapes and sizes lasting for a couple of weeks to more than half a year. Our home base will be Brightlands Campus Greenport Venlo, Villa Flora.
What isn’t BILL?
Time tables, exams, lectures.
What does this mean for you as a student?
After academic year 2 you can choose to continue your studies at BILL. If you choose BILL, this means that you will not be doing a minor, an internship or a graduation research, but that you will be able to develop yourself for your future profession on the basis of real challenges from companies in the region of Venlo. Of course, this means that you will have to meet the learning outcomes that apply to your study programme, but you will achieve these by working on real challenges.
Whom is Fontys looking for?
