After your Master degree, you can opt for a PhD or a PDeng research program. A PhD is a 4-year dedicated university research project and a PDeng is a 2-year university and industry application-focused alternative. Both programs train you in becoming a highly skilled researcher and provide you with a qualified start in your scientific career.
