ET - Industrial Design Engineering

In the field of industrial design, the Faculty of Engineering Technology offers both a BSc and an MSc degree programme in Industrial Design Engineering. Both programmes combine design, engineering, technology and the social sciences. Students will learn to design or improve products using technical insights, creativity and a feel for consumer behaviour. In this context, aspects such as safety, affordability and sustainability of products will be considered. Graduates will have learned how to get a firm grip on the entire design process, from developing ideas to market introduction, with the user experience as a key frame of reference. The modules and courses of these programmes offered to exchange students are all part of the regular programmes, whether in industrial design engineering or other. This means that many of these modules and courses are building on knowledge from modules and courses taught in earlier phases of that same programme. Before you start selecting your modules or courses, please familiarise yourself with the terminology and structure of our educational system.

Note:
Regarding your background (BSc/MSc) & the course level you can choose (BSc/MSc): bachelor students have to select BSc modules and master students can select both BSc modules or MSc courses. It is not possible to select only some parts of a module.
Regarding your background (study field) & the subjects of the courses you can choose: please read this text.
Admittance to any module or course is always subject to fulfilment of the pre-requisites of that module or course.

Note that our programmes in Industrial Design Engineering have more 'engineering' content than a lot of industrial design programmes in the world. Therefore, the expected pre-knowledge for the modules and courses given below include an extensive amount of 'engineering' and 'mathematical' basic skills. Having just 'design skills' is therefore in general not sufficient as pre-knowledge, even if you are a BSc graduate in Industrial Design.
