Throughout our history, innovation has been – and still is – a constant in everything we do. When it comes to nurturing talent, pushing scientific boundaries and stimulating innovation, we believe in doing things differently. In a constant changing world, we have to. That is what makes UHasselt the university of today.
University research policy is directed at top research in spearhead fields in a number of domains (electronic materials, ICT, life sciences, clean tech, biostatistics, traffic safety and mobility, open innovation and small businesses). In those multidisciplinary domains, the research institutes of Hasselt University combine fundamental and applied research, including contract research for regional and international industry and organizations.
Hasselt University’s approach to education is unique. Hasselt University targets students with attractive undergraduate, graduate and PhD programmes which are research-led and characterised by a high academic level and the integration of lifelong employability skills. We encourage students to look beyond books and classrooms. We equip them with knowledge and skills. Action and interaction. Thinking and doing. Intensive guidance. That is what being a student at UHasselt is all about. Our alumni are critical, engaged, agile and versatile professionals.
