Information Technology (IT) 

The Information Technology (IT) service provides a virtual workplace independent of place and time. Through the IT workplace environment, staff can work at 'any time', in 'any place' and on 'any device'. Furthermore, IT can provide (customised) IT development, integration and project management.

We develop the (generic) IT workplace environment within the IT service, where we compile customer wishes and requirements via the service consultations. IT development, integration and project management are always a collaboration between the faculty/client and the IT service.
