In September of this year, the UG will launch an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) program in Drachten. Together with partners such as NHL Stenden and Philips Drachten, this marks a significant step for Campus Drachten.
Campus Drachten focuses on healthcare technology and high-tech innovation, emphasising the essential collaboration between partners, according to the founders. The EngD in Autonomous Systems is a crucial component of this initiative, serving as the first academic programme. It is a two-year post-master’s programme that combines traditional scientific methods with direct industry involvement.
