The IDE programme is largely carried by five co-operating research chairs:
- Design Engineering (Prof.dr. I. Gibson)
- Interaction Design (Prof.dr. ir. G.D.S. Ludden)
- Product-Market Relations (Prof.dr.ir. J. Henseler)
- Packaging Design and Management (Prof.dr.ir. R. ten Klooster)
- Human Centred Design (Prof. dr. ir. M.C. Voort)
- Integrated Life Cycle Management (Prof.dr.ir. M.W. Groll)
Next to the efforts of these primary contributors, many other chairs in the faculty contribute to both the Bachelor’s and the Master’s programme.
The secretary of the above mentioned chairs (the DPM secretary) can be found in Horst W242.
