Why students choose TIO


TIO’s education is very personal. This past academic year, the average class consisted of just 11 students. Because of the small classes, you will have extensive personal contact with your lecturers and your fellow students.


TIO students enjoy an intellectually stimulating learning environment. Honours programmes, project management positions and participation in external competitions, these are just a few opportunities that we offer to our students. Small lecture groups are the ideal environment to demonstrate your personal skills and learn from other fellow students.


As a private university of applied sciences, TIO responds quickly to demands from the industry and to students’ needs. Anything suggested today can be implemented tomorrow. TIO strives to instil its entrepreneurial spirit in every one of its students.
