The purpose of the two-year EngD programme in Robotics at the University of Twente is to educate people who are able to create high-quality, creative, and innovative robotic designs as a solution for complex robotic issues.

EngD programme in Robotics

The market demand for academically technological designers is no longer fully fulfilled by regular MSc graduates. The needs of the companies, the possible brain gain, and knowledge valorization from the UT to the companies, are important reasons for the development of a EngD programme in Robotics.
Topics in the programme are for example Innovative mechatronic design, Advanced sensing and actuation, Embedded systems design, and System modeling and control.
The emphasis of the programme will be on obtaining and educating designers practicing skills in finding technological solutions. The EngD programme in Robotics prepares engineers for the design and deployment of Robotics in the industrial sector, maintenance and inspection sector, and medical sector.
