YOUR OWN WORKSTATION
All students follow courses on their own laptop, which they have to purchase themselves.
This offers a lot of advantages: you can work on the train, there is no mess with data carriers, in every class you have the disposal of your own computer and files, you can work with the latest versions of your documents at home and at your student’s apartment, you can install the latest software on your laptop through our network, and much more.
AFFORDABLE and LEGAL
Students can either use their own laptop, or buy one via Howest University College's group purchase. This includes a service package, replacement laptop during longer repairs, and the guarantee that you will not need to upgrade your notebook within 3-years time..
The minimum requirements for a DAE laptop can be found here. The cost for legal software is included in the study cost (see "tuition fees"), and instructions for installing software will be given during the introduction days at the start of the academic year.
You can find more information on www.howest.be/laptops. For your questions concerning deferred payment you can contact STIP, our student information point.
Our campus has wireless internet connection available. This makes surfing the internet even more comfortable! By the way, did you know that we can offer you a very profitable wireless subscription?
