What others say

Jochem Sybesma (Zuyd Hogeschool)

“Up front, I did not know what to expect. The whole experience surprised me in a very positive way. The lectures were very interesting, the people acted very nice and – also important – the food tasted great.”

Ana Victoria Ladeira (Maastricht University)

“I would definitely recommend to join the IT Masterclass! I decided to sign up to gain experience, to discover how things work in a real business environment, and to give my resume a boost.”

Ruud Faassen (Fontys)

“At school, you only get the theoretical background. It is very cool to understand how companies operate according to the agile scrum framework in their project management.”

IT Masterclass

Marijke Sporen (Lector PXL Hasselt)

“Motivated students from different Institutions (or Universities) together with IT-specialists from Mediaan working on hype topics in a relaxed atmosphere. Nice to see…”

Berkan Aktag (PXL Hasselt)

“Especially the interactive part of the IT Masterclass is very educational. In a group of 5 to 6 students, you collaborate together on an assignment. There is a great atmosphere between the participating students, which makes the cooperation very smooth.”

Nordine Aouni (Maastricht University)

“I did  not particularly sign up to win the price, but how awesome would this experience be? After attending the Visual Studio Live! Conference at the Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, I would stay a little longer and also celebrate my holiday in the US. “

Oscar de Leeuw (Fontys)

“I knew Mediaan already because of a collaboration project on Fontys. When I first heard of the IT Masterclass, I was immediately excited. The IT Masterclass has absolutely not been disappointed. On the contrary, it was awesome!”

Cédric Sterckx (PXL Hasselt)

“If I had to make a choice, the security and artificial intelligence classes are my most favorite ones. But in general, Mediaan is such a nice company with all sorts of interesting expertise. After graduation, I would definitely see myself working here.”
