Student IT UCLL


As a student of the professional bachelor IT at UCLL I have aquired a bunch of competences and skills.

Below I will use the Domain Specific Education Results written by the NVAO to shorty explain how I have aquired these competences and how profound I master them.

The professional bachelor IT analyzes a problem, translates it to an IT-context and shows it in a structual manner by using analyzing- and modelling techniques.

At UCLL there are a few courses based around analyzing and modelling, for example Object Oriented System Analysis. In this course we started up a fictif company and developped an information system for it according to the object-oriented principles. We learned how to make class diagrams and create/use situation, activities, sequence and collaboration diagrams in order to describe the dynamic model.

Personally I feel I have a decent understanding of modelling for IT applications.

The professional bachelor IT collects and handles process- and data details, stores them and makes them available, in such a way that they can be queried in a correct and efficient way.

The IT bachelor offers multiple database management and modelling courses, therefor allowing us to persist and handle data for a specific application aswell as design the database itself.

The professional bachelor IT designs, builds, documents and tests qualitative IT solutions.

As a software engineering student I have built a few projects for courses that take care of the design, the documenting and the testing of the application that we build. We are thaught best practices to do so in our courses.

I feel I have a good understand of building and testing IT solutions, partly because of these courses.

The professional bachelor IT installs, configures, secures, maintains and supports IT solutions and changes them if needed so that they constantly match the changing needs of an organisation.

In our courses we are thaught to build easily adaptable IT solutions so that they can be changed according to changing needs using design principles, design patterns and such.

I have a good understanding of how to do this.

The professional bachelor IT acts deontologically and socially responsible, in accordance with business and organization context, regulations, best practices and strategies based on own insight and knowledge.

We currently haven't had any courses about ethics and law in the IT world, but in the next year we will have a dedicated course to it so I will be well prepared to apply the above to what I have already learned.

The professional bachelor IT critically examines and evaluates existing and innovative IT solutions.

As we learn to build IT solutions we are told to be critical and to always review whatever you are building. I personally enjoy doing this and have grown accustomed to it during my education.

The professional bachelor IT provides advice on IT solutions, products, services and technologies for different domains and/or sectors.

Ofcourse having knowledge about IT solutions also puts us in a place to give advice to others who are not as well educated in that department. 

The professional bachelor IT can tackle a project-based assignment independently and in a multidisciplinary and/or multi-cultural team.

Each semester of the IT bachelor has a project week where we work together in small groups, similar to how alot of companies work together in teams.

The professional bachelor IT communicates at least in Dutch and English, orally and in writing, both adapted to the target audience.

In our courses "Communication"  and "Object Oriented System Analysis" in the second year we are thaught how to explain IT related stuff to non-tech savvy people. This is both in Dutch and English, we also have a course that teaches us IT related terms in French. I personally think my Dutch, English and French skills are above average.

The professional bachelor IT is entrepreneurial, takes initiative and responds to new developments and application domains.

Our courses teach us how to use the newest and most used technologies in the field. For example we learned how to build web applications using Angular, Spring boot and how to use continuous integration and continuous development tools like Jenkins and Docker.

The professional bachelor IT supports change processes when IT solutions are deployed.

As we all know business needs are ever changing so it is important that we take changes into account when we develop our applications.
