The Software Technology programme from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is designed to prepare you for an industrial career as a technological designer, and later on as a software or system architect. It starts with 14 months of advanced training and education, including 4 small, industry driven training projects, followed by a major design project of 10 months in a company.
The technological designer 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. The ST program is part of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Eindhoven University of Technology.
More than 470 trainees successfully finished the Software Technology program since the foundation in 1986. A large majority started and proceeded their career in the Netherlands, especially in the Eindhoven Brainport Area. From software architect to entrepreneur, an ST graduate has many career choices.
Our alumni demonstrate that the diploma enhances the career opportunities. Industry offers engineers from our program excellent jobs, because they know that our graduates have gained superb qualities. Most graduates find jobs like software or system designer, (senior) software architect, and in the long term, system architect.
