A PDEng program is on par with a PhD program. The difference is their focus: a PhD is aimed to establish you as an independent researcher and a PDEng prepares you for a high-level position in industry. A PDEng program is a challenging, balanced combination of theory and practice. Below you can find an overview of our PDEng programs.
