We present a numerical method to compute expectations of functionals of a piecewise deterministic Markov process. We discuss time dependent functionals as well as deterministic time horizon problems. Our approach is based on the quantization of an underlying discrete-time Markov chain. We obtain bounds for the rate of convergence of the algorithm. The approximation we propose is easily computable and is flexible with respect to some of the parameters defining the problem. An example illustrates the paper.
