About

Designer in Bioprocess Engineering programme from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) develops MSc graduates from (bio-)chemical engineering, or related academic backgrounds, into multidisciplinary specialists, in preparation for a career in the industry.

Overview

Key facts

The Designer in Bioprocess Engineering programme from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) develops selected MSc graduates from Biochemical 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 MSc degree for the numerous challenges inherent in an industry-focused profession. The two year 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.

Programme Structure

  • The course programme is custom-designed to each student and thus differs from trainee to trainee depending on background and interest. Some parts are compulsory, however, as all disciplines must be sufficiently represented. 
  • Courses are organised by different institutions, such as TU Delft and the University of Leiden. Also, the Graduate School on Process Technology (OSPT) and Biotech Delft run courses aimed explicitly at PDEng, PhD or professional level.
  • Mandatory courses are Advanced Principles in Product and Process Design; Individual Design Project; Fermentation Technology & Environmental Biotechnology; Group Design Project; Microbial Physiology; Project Management and Techno-Economic Evaluation for Design Engineers.
