Industrial Design Engineering

The description of the Exchange Study Packages (ESP) which can be chosen by exchange students in Industrial Design Engineering can be found by clicking on the button below. Make sure you choose a package in your own study level (bachelor / master)!

Additional option for MSc exchange students:

Although we strongly prefer you to choose one or two of those Exchange Study Packages, it might be that you would really like to choose your own set of courses. In that case, take a look at this overview of courses in the MSc programme Industrial Design Engineering, colour coded per specialisation. Regular MSc students in IDE have to choose a specialisation; exchange students do not. You can, however, use that information to select a feasible package of courses. Clicking on a course name in that overview will lead you straight to our Course catalogue, in which you can find more information regarding the concerned module/course. Do pay attention to the required pre-knowledge! Also note that MSc courses require a finished BSc degree in the same or similar field, which is not always mentioned.

Realise that if you choose your own individual course package rather than the suggested ESPs:

  • the assessment of your application will take more time. The assessment time increases if you choose courses belonging to an educational programme of a different faculty; your application will have to be assessed by different members of staff.
  • you increase the risk of having overlap in your lectures. The risk is the lowest if you choose courses within a specialisation, and increases if you choose courses of different specalisations or even different educational programmes. Since the schedules are published a few weeks before the block starts, overlap cannot be checked months in advance.

!! Note that our BSc programme in Industrial Design has more 'engineering' content than a lot of industrial design programmes in the world. Therefore, the expected pre-knowledge for the MSc courses 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.
