Welcome to the website of the PDEng Programme "Process and Equipment Design"!

The Process and Equipment Design programme is an advanced level traineeship that trains and educates MSc-graduates to become certified designers. This traineeship is full time and takes two years to complete. After careful selection MSc-graduates are hired as PDEng trainees, becoming employees of the university, and receiving a salary.

Succesful trainees are awarded the diploma "Professional Doctorate in Engineering" (PDEng) and may add the abbreviation PDEng to their professional title. The PDEng diploma's are registered by:

  • Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers (KIVI, Koninklijk Instituut van Ingenieurs) The Netherlands

The programme was developed in 1990 by TU Delft in close co-operation with the Research School Process Technology (OSPT) and the Dutch (chemical) industry. Since then over 170 graduates have successfully completed the programme, and each year about 10 to 12 PDEng trainees are normally enrolled.
