Designing new products and improving existing ones is a continual process. Take the Master’s in Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) and discover the full potential of the interaction between design and engineering.
The two-year MSc programme in Industrial Design Engineering is an internationally oriented programme and is taught entirely in English. You can start in September or February. The pre-master's programme only starts in September. Read more about the Master's programme, pre-Master's programme and admission. You can also find more information about career prospects and read the testimonials of Industrial Design Engineering students. We also offer a bachelor's programme (BSc.) in Industrial Design.
Ten years ago, many of today’s products did not exist or were nothing more than prototypes of their current selves. Ten years from now, these same products will have evolved even further, maybe thanks to you. The Master’s in Industrial Design Engineering gives you the know-how to make it happen.
This programme combines design, engineering, technology and the social sciences. You will go beyond the mere circuitry of electronic equipment to design and improve products that are part of people’s everyday lives. You will consider their safety, affordability and sustainability, with the user experience as a key frame of reference.
It takes professionals with a wide array of skills to develop consumer products. At the University of Twente you will not only learn how to design a product on paper, but explore the whole product development chain to become a professional product developer.
The world needs well-rounded developers with a feeling for the integrated development of smart technologies. Fast-developing technologies in combination with ever shorter time-to-market will only increase the demand for IDE professionals who are able to cross traditional boundaries and apply a wide range of skills.
