industrial doctoral degree places

Our PhDs and PDEng trainees bring scientific research onto the workfloor.

PhD

In order to take advantage of opportunities for collaborating with the industry, it is important that a university builds up - from an international perspective - a distinctive position based on scientific quality. Research investments with a specific industrial interest are therefore in line with the university's scientific strategy.

An industrial doctoral degree place is a PhD, who does research on this interface between applied research and scientific research. Such a PhD is employed by the UT.

PDEng

PDEng trainees (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) attend a two-year post-master's design programme at the University of Twente. The programme is designed together with the industry concerned. There are five different PDEng programmes: Civil Engineering, Energy & Process technology, Care Logistics, Maintenance and Robotics.

The programmes combine scientific research with an industrial context, so that the trainees are able to make high-quality innovative designs for the commissioning party in case of complex problems with a multidisciplinary nature. See www.utwente.nl/pdeng for more information, also for companies.
