Many players, ranging from large Multi-nationals to SME and start-ups are active. Many of those will profit from this established ICT program. Many companies in the world are potentially interested in the program and also the trainees come from different countries, it is a multi-cultural group.

The Brainport Area in the Netherlands is known for its High Tech Industry. The Information and Communication Technology program  has strongly built collaborations with an increasing number of companies.

Furthermore the program extends to outside the Eindhoven area with intention to also address companies abroad. The curricular structure with block-lectures lends itself for this, as the trainees can work on the engineering projects at the companies location and efficiently travel back to Eindhoven for the block-lectures only.
