PDEng in Robotics

I have consciously chosen the PDEng because a PhD was too science-driven; I'd rather work at a high level for a company on a great assignment. Through my master project I actually got familiar with the PDEng. At my Master's project I have made the start of my current design and during my PDEng programme I develop the design further.

In addition to the technical skills I learn, I learned a lot of practical knowledge, such as how to design. Through the PDEng, I got more feeling with how designing works in practice. During your Master assignment you work on a design, whereas after finishing the PDEng you actually CAN design.”
