Engineering at the VUB. Help shape tomorrow's world.

We live in a high-tech world. Every day new technologies and scientific breakthroughs make the headlines. Which is precisely why becoming an engineer is so exciting. Because you can help shape the world we live in. We are all too keenly aware of this at the VUB, which is why our engineering programmes are considered to be among the best, as is the scientific research of our many research groups. Do you want to be where the action is? Then enrol in the Faculty of Engineering at the VUB – the first faculty in Flanders to have a woman as dean. Yet another example of our pioneering spirit.
