Process and Product Design, PDEng

About

The program Process and Product Design is offered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

Since its start, over 300 certified design engineers have graduated from the two-year post-master's program Process and Product Design.

One of the main features of the program is expressed in its name: besides attention to process design much attention is paid to the relation between the process and the structure and functionality of the product. This leads to the integration of process and product related disciplines in the development, design, and operationalization of processes. More and more, process engineers are finding employment in the performance products manufacturing industry.

Mission and Vision

The program is directed at the broad field of the process and product industry and aims to prepare the course participants for leading functions in the field of process design and knowledge-intensive product development. The objective is to develop their ability to define feasible targets, to identify and acquire the available means, and to synthesize these skills in the form of a completed result within the time agreed on.

Accreditation

This program is recognized as a PDEng program by the CCTO, the Dutch certification institute for technological designer programs.

Programme Structure

First Year - Curricular part

In the first year of the program, detailed attention is given to building up knowledge. To create a broadly based, top-level interdisciplinary program, the basic component is formed by a coherent set of courses, in which group assignments and teamwork play central roles. All courses are purpose-made for this designer's program, and are given mainly by lecturers from industry.

Second Year - Design project

After the curricular year, the technological design projects are carried out in the second year of the program. These are challenging projects with a high reality value that are aimed at the development of the trainee design engineers' abilities. In the project, a specific design objective must be reached within a restricted period of time and with limited means. Projects have an integrative character through the application of several (sub)disciplines.

English Language Requirements
