  • Pandemic and teaching modes
    The pandemic forced us to switch to distance learning in spring 2020. Currently, theory is still taught in distance mode, while practice and projects are generally taught in the laboratories of the Universities of Applied Sciences (HEI). For the start of the 2021 academic year, if the situation allows it, we will reintroduce the face-to-face mode of teaching while keeping for some teaching a distance mode when it is more appropriate. From now on, the MSE aims to increase the quality of teaching by combining face-to-face and distance learning in an optimal way.
