Learning through action is a tried-and-tested method! ESB’s teaching practices revolve around project-based experimentation, to which it dedicates specific sessions.
ESB has structured its
training programmes so that they incorporate hands-on exercises at every stage. In this way, students have the opportunity to tackle actual challenges encountered in the professional world.
This ‘maker’ spirit brings students into contact with field realities at the earliest possible time and enables them to alternate between theory and practice.
