MSD is positioned as a sub-track of ASD. It's the intention to give it the status of a separate PDEng program as soon as possible.
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.
Program graduates will be awarded a certified diploma and the degree 'Professional Doctorate in Engineering' (PDEng). Their name will be entered in the PDEng register of the Royal Dutch Institute for Engineers (KIVI). The program is affiliated to the British Association of Engineering Doctorates (AEngD).
After completing this post-master program the graduate shall:
- Articulation of the problem (stakeholder analysis, use case modeling);
- Analysis of the problem (requirements)
- Modeling the problem (abstract, formal, conceptual);
- Refinement of the solution (architecture, global design, detailed design, implementation);
- Taking emerging and possibly conflicting constraints into consideration;
- Integrating parts of a solution;
- Verification and validation of the solution.
This results in a number of competitive advantages for a career in the design and development of products and services for the high-tech automotive industry.
