Collaboration 4TU and UG on technological design programs

Joining forces for better education! Proud to announce that 4TU.SAI - EngD programs (4TU.SAI), the 4TU School for Technological Design, will be expanded to include the Engineering Doctorate (EngD) programs of the University of Groningen

The University of Groningen (UG) will start two Engineering Doctorate (EngD) programs 'Autonomous Systems' and 'Sustainable Process Design' with effect from 1 September 2024. This will bring the number of EngD programs and tracks within 4TU.SAI to a total of 20. These two-year, full-time, post-Master's programs lead to technological designers, obtaining the academic degree EngD.

4TU is pleased with this collaboration because, besides the programs being extended in terms of content, it also results in better use of each other's expertise and network.
