Research-driven innovation

If you decide to study engineering, you will have good opportunities to work with research-driven innovation. Many students participate as ‘junior researchers’ in major engineering projects. These projects will give you insight into research methods and into work to generate new knowledge and develop new, ground-breaking technologies.

A career as a researcher

If you want to, and if you have the skills, after your MSc in Engineering degree you can apply for a PhD programme in which, through a three-year research project in close collaboration with the department researchers, and through courses and individual supervision, you will be trained as a researcher. A small group of the most talented engineers choose this path.
