TU/e offers two-year post-Master designer's programs. Like a doctoral candidate, you will have the status of TU/e employee if you are selected for one of these programs. The programs start with a year of advanced education, followed by a major design project of eight to twelve months in a company.
The designer's programs lead to a Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) degree. These programs are given under the banner of 4TU.School for Technological Design, Stan Ackermans Institute, a joint initiative of the four universities of technology in the Netherlands.

The Clinical Informatics programme is geared towards the design of information systems in healthcare. The CI trainees develop an in-depth understanding of the technical aspects and the user requirements within the healthcare domain. IT knowledge, but also knowledge of clinical, as well as business processes is crucial to the design of optimal solutions, which really support the professionals in healthcare.
The programme is carried out in close cooperation with hospitals and other care institutions all over the Netherlands. All trainees in the programme are required to be fluent in Dutch.
