Title traditionally awarded to graduates in engineering, agriculture and environmental science at hogescholen. The abbreviation 'ing.' is written before the name. Since 1986 HBO graduates have been entitled to use the title 'Bachelor', abbreviated to 'BA' and written after the name. Under the new bachelor's-master's structure, students at hogescholen (universities of applied sciences) earn bachelor's degrees but they may still use the old title if they wish.
