Objectives

The postgraduate programme ‘Designer in Bioprocess Engineering’ develops selected MSc graduates from (bio-)chemical engineering, or related academic backgrounds, into designers in Bioprocess Engineering, with the title ‘Professional Doctorate in Engineering’, or PDEng.

What is the PDEng?

The PDEng is a specialised design traineeship aimed at preparing qualified candidates with a masters degree for the numerous challenges inherent in an industry-focused profession. The two year, one-of-a-kind programme involves advanced courses that refine the technical knowledge of the trainee, while improving their understanding of economic and managerial aspects of design. Supplementing this is twelve months of hands-on industrial experience, in which this knowledge can be applied. Upon graduation, the trainee will have obtained an innovative attitude, a critical approach, and the capability to solve a wide array of practical design challenges.
