Engineering doctorate

What is an EngD programme?

Are you a Master’s graduate with an interest in designing practical and innovative technologies for the industry sector? Then a EngD programme is your ticket to a successful career!

The EngD is a postgraduate degree in the Netherlands and stands for Engineering Doctorate. The 2-year programme consists of lecturers, workshops and a technological design project. You perform the design project in and for an industry company. A great way to apply your theoretical knowledge in solving a real-life, complex design problem.

You combine learning and earning during the programme, because a EngD trainee is hired as an employee of the university and receives a salary. EngD graduates have excellent career opportunities, due to the high standards of the programme and the collaboration with industry companies.

Four Dutch universities offer the EngD programme: Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology and University of Twente, Wageningen University and Research.
