In the first year of the program, detailed attention is given to building up knowledge and bridging the gap between theory and practice. To create a broadly based, top-level interdisciplinary program, the basic component is formed by a coherent set of courses, in which group assignments and teamwork play central roles. All courses are purpose-made for this designer's program, and are given mainly by lecturers from industry. All courses in the program are taught in English, but an optional Dutch language course is also offered.
Technological design projects are carried out in the second year. These are challenging projects - carried out in collaboration with industry over twelve months - with a high reality value that are aimed at developing the trainee design engineers' abilities. The projects involve reaching a specific design objective within a restricted period of time and with limited means. Students will be coached by design engineers from industry and by university staff with clear and relevant design experience. The projects are monitored by project planning, regular progress meetings and monthly project management meetings.
To apply for our PPD Course you need to hold a Masters Degree (MSc), preferably in Chemical Engineering, or at least have a firm background in Chemical Engineering. Candidates without the proper background will not be considered by our Selection Committee. The complete application procedure and requirements can be found on the following webpage – http://www.3tu.nl/en/education/sai/programmes/ppd/application/
For your information:
To guarantee the quality of the program, the PPD selection committee applies strict selection criteria. Candidates must be among the top 25% of their discipline. Next to excellent grades, their motivation and personality is extremely important.
In order for our selection committee to consider your application, we would need the following information:
For an application we expect a letter with motivation and extended Curriculum Vitae, a copy of your diplomas, a list of taken courses with marks, one or two recommendation letters and a copy of your passport together with a passport photograph. A proof of English is important (e.g. IELST). Your diploma and list of followed courses must be translated officially into English.
Depending on the country of origin (and visa / work permit requirements) , the application procedure roughly takes two to three months. Therefore, the nearest possible date to enrol the program would be 1 April (we have 2 start dates each year: 1 October and 1 April)
