The post-master designer program PPD is one of the larger Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) programs at TU/e with an intake of currently 20-25 trainees per year and is part of the faculty of Chemical Engineering & Chemistry.
The PPD program has been created in close collaboration with industry in response to the high-tech industry’s urgent need for innovation and design engineers. After a strong selection, the best young engineers are trained in innovation and knowledge valorization in process and product design: How to best put theory into practice and transfer knowledge into value, i.e.
how to create value by means of the creation of new and innovative processes or products.
The PPD is a two-year, full-time PDEng program. The first year focuses on dedicated post-master courses often taught by people from industry to broaden and deepen knowledge on process and product design by working on industrially inspired assignments, often in teams. The second year consists of an assignment carried out for and at our industrial partners, including well-known international companies such as Shell, SABIC, DSM, Unilever, Jansen Pharmaceutica and Dow.
The program is directed at the broad field of the process and product industry and prepares our graduates for leading functions in the field of process design and knowledge-intensive product development. The objective is to develop their ability to define feasible targets, to identify and acquire the available means, and to synthesize these skills in the form of a completed result within the time agreed on. Linked to this all is the ability to work in and lead a usually multidisciplinary team.
