MSc Integrated Product Design
How can we design products and services that benefit individuals, organisations, and the planet? How can designers transform products into dynamic entities with lifelike qualities, such as products that grow, react, and evolve? How does the integration of Artificial Intelligence empower products to possess cognitive and creative attributes?
The MSc Integrated Product Design (IPD) is an advanced design programme that integrates design, technology, and research to enable students to develop new perspectives on product design. They learn to shape innovative, sustainable, and ethical products that benefit people, society, and the planet.
Degree: Master of Science
Accredited by the NVAO
Start: September (for applicants with a Dutch BSc-IDE degree a start in February is also possible)

Highlighted Student Stories
TomTom Orbit is a digital sports toy that can be thrown with. This shuttle measures several throw statistics like distance, height, speed, spin and amount of catches.
Materials that Move
A novel material is developed consisting of 3D-printed flexible material combined with Fields metal (a metal with extreme low melting point). By adding memory metal wires the material is able to morph in a controlled manner, thus making a new type of products possible which can morph into different geometrical shapes.
