The Energy and Process Technology programme from University of Twente (UT)  is based on functional and market based requirements and focuses on quality, environment and sustainability. During the programme, you transfer results into technological innovation in industry and society.

A methodological approach, which tackles the always present uncertainties, always comes first.

Design project

The design project will be defined in close consultation with the organisation or institution where you will be working for. The project can arise from a design question from the organisation/institution or from the valorisation of PhD research where industry/government has an inquiry to. The programme ensures that the design project is innovative and complex, contains sufficient design aspects and is sufficiently multidisciplinary. 

The design project is individually in the sense that you have your own project. Because of the complex and multidisciplinary character of the project, in most projects you will work together with colleagues. The University of Twente ensures that there is a clear part of the design, for which you are responsible and for which you will be judged.


Employers of graduates of this PDEng programme are often the organizations were the trainees do their design assignments. The branches of these organizations vary from large multinationals to smaller companies in the energy-, process- and materials sector. Also engineer companies and energy-generating companies have shown their interest.
