In the Designer in Bioprocess Engineering programme, you develop yourself into a visionary team-player with a state-of-the-art background in biosciences and chemical engineering, prepared for innovative bioprocess design. You gain business knowledge, e.g., economical evaluation and project management, to evaluate the implementation of developed processes in an industrial environment. Throughout the programme, you are trained to develop and apply an independent attitude, a critical approach, creativity and a focus on innovative application in the interdisciplinary field of Biochemical Engineering. The biotech industries in the Netherlands and abroad value graduated Designers in Bioprocess Engineering and offer them a range of careers in all facets of bioprocess development.
In the first year, PDEng-trainees take mandatory courses and a personal selection from advanced courses in fermentation technology, microbiology, downstream processing, environmental biotechnology, or biocatalysis, along with economic evaluation and project management courses. A group design project will be carried out. The second year consists of an individual design project carried out in, or in close collaboration with, industry.
