Designer in Bioprocess Engineering

The two-year post-MSc programme entitled ‘Designer in Bioprocess Engineering’, develops MSc graduates from (bio-)chemical engineering, or related academic backgrounds, into multidisciplinary specialists, in preparation for a career in the industry.

Upon graduation, the title ‘Professional Doctorate in Engineering’, or PDEng, is awarded. This title is recognised by the:

  • Graduate School on Process Technology (OSPT), the Netherlands
  • Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers (KIVI, Koninklijk Instituut van Ingenieurs), the Netherlands

The programme was developed in 1994 by BioTech Delft postgraduate studies, and over 100 graduates have subsequently completed the programme. After careful selection, the PDEng trainees are employed at the Department of Biotechnology of the university and receive a salary.
