Industrial Design Engineering

Below you will find the Exchange Study Packages (ESP) which can be chosen by exchange students in Industrial Design Engineering. Note that in your application procedure you will be asked which courses you would like to do. Make sure you do not mention the name of the ESP but rather the individual codes and names of the different courses of this particular ESP.

ESP - fall semester

Advanced Product Development (level: M)

This Exchange Study Package consists of six MSc courses. For more information on this package, please click here. Click on the code to go directly to the course catalogue. 
Note that these courses might also be open to final year BSc students, depending on their background. However, due to the fact that our BSc programme in Industrial Design has more 'engineering' content than a lot of industrial design programmes in the world, the pre-knowledge for the courses below do require an extensive amount of 'engineering' and 'mathematical' basic skills. Having just 'design skills' is therefore not sufficient as pre-knowledge.

Quarter 1A:
192850730 - Governing Product Development (5 ECTS)
192850910 - Packaging Design and Management (5 ECTS)
201700019 - Brand Management (5 ECTS) 

Quarter 1B:
192850870 - Surface Engineering for Look and Feel (5 ECTS)
200900077 - Graphic Language of Products (5 ECTS)
192850740 - Product Life Cycle (5ECTS)  

ESP - spring semester
