DPM has developed and executed multiple courses in the field of Sustainable Resources both the bachelor level and the master level. Below a short list of education in the past years is given. Descriptions of courses can be retrieved from Osiris.

Life-cycle Strategy, master’s program of Industrial Design Engineering (Marten Toxopeus). This course provides knowledge about the methodological framework and application of Life Cycle Inventories and Analyses on materials, products and product-service systems.

Product Life Cycle, master’s program of Industrial Design Engineering (Marten Toxopeus). This course provides knowledge about the methodological framework and application of Life Cycle Inventories and Analyses on materials, products and product-service systems. The methods are applied to real products and interpreted in a context of environmental impacts, costs and the full life cycle.

Sources of Innovation, master’s program of Industrial Design Engineering (Angele Reinders, 2005-present) In this course each year a design case is executed by teams of 40 students among which:
o Ideation and conceptual product development for DNV GL for Smart Grids (2013-2014)
o Ideation and conceptual product development for Concentrating Solar Power with Spectrolabs (Boeijng, USA)and Fraunhofer Institute ISE (Germany) (Angele Reinders, 2012)
o Ideation and conceptual product development for the Smart Highway project, collaborative project commissioned by Daan Roosegaarde (Angele Reinders, 2011)
The course results are applied in practice (Roosegaarde) or processed into papers about design.

Create the Future, master’s program of Industrial Design Engineering (Wouter Eggink & Adri Albert-de-la-Bruheze, 2007-present). In this course plausible product concepts for the far future are developed with Scenario Planning.  Each year a specific theme in technology and society is researched by 30-40 students among which:

o Sustainable urban mobility (2016)

o Area development for Airport Twente (2015)

o Electric mobility (2010)

o Sustainable Energy Technologies (2006)

 

Design concepts for electric mobility - 'amplified walking'. To improve technology acceptance every target group has its' own familiar product configuration (from course 'Create the Future').

Solar Energy, master’s program of Sustainable Energy Technology (Angele Reinders, 2007-present)

Introduction to Sustainable Design, third year of bachelor Industrial Design Engineering (Angele Reinders, 2008-2013)

Initiator of a new master’s curriculum on Solar Energy at ITB, Bandung, Indonesia (Angele Reinders, 2011-2014)
