Testimonials PDEng Energy & Process Technology

Marzieh Salehi

Hi, my name is Marzieh and I’m taking the PDEng programme Energy & Process Technology.


"For the development of tires, extensive road tests are necessary. Up to date, there is no lab method and equipment to measure dry grip with a satisfying correlation with road vehicle tire performance. The goal of this project is to design equipment and a method for measuring dry grip, starting from the LAT100 (Laboratory Abrasion Tester) machine which is commonly used for measuring abrasion and wet grip."


"The main reason for choosing a PDEng program was having a tangible and practical experience withi industry in addition to considering the theories behind.

University of Twente is an international university which give me a chance to meet international people in my field during this program.  I would recommend this two years program for MSc graduates who are interested in taking one step further in their educational status and directly get involved with industries after their graduation.”

"I think the PDEng enables me to experience a smooth transition from being a student to become an engineer. The environment gives me the possibility to further develop my personality and skills as well as gain experience in working at a company.

At the university, people treat me in the same way like a PhD student. In general, I have weekly meetings with my supervisor, where we discuss my work in detail. There are also monthly meetings with the professor. Besides that there are regular meetings with people from the company as well. Overall, I’m really happy how these things work out.

The PDEng programme in Energy & Process Technology gives you the possibility to start into your career at a place where you have all resources to develop yourself further. I guess much better than if you work at a company."
