Designer in Bioprocess Engineering

The two-year Designer in Bioprocess Engineering programme develops MSc graduates in (Bio-)chemical Engineering or related academic backgrounds into multidisciplinary specialists, in preparation for a career in the industry. Part of this Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) entails a one-year traineeship at a company while under the supervision of a Delft University of Technology faculty. Your company can offer one of these traineeships.

Upon graduation, the title ‘Professional Doctorate in Engineering’, or PDEng, is awarded. This title is recognised by the 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 150 graduates have subsequently completed the programme. After a thorough selection, the PDEng trainees are employed at the Department of Biotechnology of the university and receive a salary.
