PDEng programs

Are you a young professional graduate or currently completing your Master's at a university of technology? Are you interested in technological design, and would you like to increase your opportunities on the employment market? Are you specifically looking for a career in industry or business? Then the two-year post-Master's PDEng programs focusing on technological design at TU/e may well be what you're looking for!

What does a PDEng program involve?

The PDEng programs are two-year salaried programs in the field of technological design. After gaining your Master's degree in a technological field and a stringent selection process, you can do PDEng program. The programs lead to a Professional Doctorate in Engineering degree.
During your program you will increase your technological knowledge, but you also learn how to apply it in practice. As well as that you work on your professional skills to increase your career opportunities.
Like a doctoral candidate, you will have the status of a TU/e employee. That means you will receive a salary and have excellent secondary conditions of employment.
