4TU Stan Ackermans Institute



PDEng programmes offer trainees the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and experience by means of a personal and practical design assignment, under the supervision of experienced scientific design professionals. You will be appointed for the duration of the programme for a maximum of two years. You will also become a member of the scientific staff of one of the universities and receive a salary. These programmes all lead to a Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng).


As you become an employee of one of the universities, you combine learning and earning throughout the programme. During the design project in the second year, which is done in and for industry, you demonstrate your ability to apply your theoretical knowledge in solving a real-life, complex design problem. Many of our graduated PDEng trainees joined the company where they carried out their design assignment and now fulfill management positions.
