Career opportunities for CME graduates can be found across the full spectrum of the building and construction industry, at home and abroad. Instead of directly working in the building- and construction industry, now there is the opportunity to follow one of the Post-Master's designers programmes in Civil engineering at the 4TU Stan Ackermans Institute.
The PDEng (Professional Doctorate in Engineering) programmes in Civil Engineering train and educate MSc graduates to become a qualified designer, capable of designing ‘fit for purpose’ and ‘first of its kind’ products, processes and equipment. It encourages to actively look beyond the perimeters of a discipline and to recognise the challenges and restrictions imposed by product chain management, time and money. During design projects the student brings industrial and academic knowledge together and apply them in real industrial assignments. A PDEng programme is fulltime and takes two years to complete. During the programme, the trainee spends about half your time working on the design project in a company and during the other part of the programme he/she will attain courses.
