This line of study is aimed at students who are dedicated, curious and independent. Science and Innovation focuses on technical and scientific knowledge and the tools to apply that knowledge in the creation of innovative solutions to real problems, big and small alike. The study line is characterized by its unique blend of:
- Mathematics, the prerequisite for understanding and describing science and economy.
- Innovation, teaching the students to work from idea to a product.
- English, the route to cultural understanding and global communication.
Science and Innovation makes the students ready for further studies, starting a company and participating in networks across cultures and national borders. Therefore, it also includes studying at a school in the USA for 4 weeks during the second year, where, apart from studying, our students will visit companies and stay with an American family.
