About UHasselt


Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action



Hasselt University has six faculties that control teaching and research. Each faculty forms an education management team (OMT) and an Examination Board for each programme.


Various departments operate within the faculties. These bring together all staff performing research and teaching within the same discipline. Each department in turn consists of one or more research groups. These are responsible for the organisation of specialist research.

Running across this classic tree structure of faculties, research groups and departments are the research institutes. These group together researchers from different research groups who perform research in certain priority areas. The entire research spectrum is covered in this way, from fundamental research via applied research to practical applications.
