PDEng positions in Civil Engineering: Circular design techniques for future-proof viaductsPosted by: University of Twente (UT)
Posted date: 2017-Sep-19
The Professional Doctorate in Engineering (PDEng) programme Civil Engineering offers you a 2-year position combining post MSc education and a design project to be carried out at Rijkswaterstaat.
The educational programme, carried out at the University of Twente, will have an in-depth and broadening character with ample attention for professional development and will be partly tailored to the design project. In collaboration with Rijkwaterstaat you will work on high level, creative new designs for complex issues.For the Dutch Highways Agency (asset manager of bridges and viaducts), it is important to get insights in which circular design techniques can be used most effectively in construction and replacement of bridges and viaducts in their main road network. Nowadays, it is observed more frequently that viaducts need to be replaced because they are not functional anymore while technically they’re still all right. If they were built in the past ‘circular’, could they have now easily be adjusted or moved? What features are important for adaptation, but also what trends can be expected in the future (smart mobility) and are aspects that need to be examined.
The research questions of the project are:
Candidates with a non-Dutch qualification and who have not had secondary and tertiary education in English can only be admitted with an IELTS-test showing a total band score of at least 6.5, internet TOEFL test (TOEFL-iBT) showing a score of at least 90, or a Cambridge CAE-C (CPE).Application
