Jan de Jong (alumnus EngD Robotics)

I have consciously chosen the EngD 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 EngD. At my Master's project I have made the start of my current design and during my EngD 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 EngD, I got more feeling with how designing works in practice. During your Master assignment you work on a design, whereas after finishing the EngD you actually CAN design.”
