An Engineering Doctorate (EngD) programme in Civil and Environmental Engineering will provide such an opportunity for engineers and graduated master students.
The faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of TU Delft has developed a two year EngD programme in two tracks:
- Sanitary & Environmental Engineering focuses on water management issues related to health technology, such as water collection, water and sanitation, environment and water transportation.
- Structural & Railway Engineering is aimed at innovation in civil engineering, for example smart buildings, new materials and sustainable railways.
The EngD programme will help you to develop strategic innovations. During the programme, you learn how to initiate, develop and finish a design project which is of interest to the company or your employer. The design project is the core of the programme and is carried out individually. It is supported with different courses as well as an integral project. The individual design project takes the innovation past the phase of prototyping to implementation and market introduction. In the project you demonstrate your ability to apply the knowledge you gathered in the different courses of the programme, in solving a real- life, complex design problem or developing a new system.
