Non-Dutch BSc degree

Integrated Product Design

The Integrated Product Design programme requires students to have a balanced combination of design skills and a thorough understanding of the product development process. Due to the fact that products are designed for people, knowledge of aesthetics/form giving and ergonomics is required. Products need to be technically sound, therefore (in-depth) knowledge of mechanics, electronics, materials and production technologies is also required. Students need to be able to design and communicate the design intent effectively, therefore knowledge of design methods and techniques, design sketching and 3D rendering skills is required.

Next, we require candidates to have relevant research skills and an academic approach to the subject of industrial design. An advanced level of academic writing is needed in order to report research and design activities. Teamwork skills are essential as students will cooperate in project teams. English proficiency is very important for successful participation in project teams. Furthermore, as an IPD student it is crucial to couple human aspects, technology aspects and business aspects mentioned before.

Every application will be reviewed on an individual basis by the selection committee of the MSc programme. Admission will be based on an evaluation of all documents that you are required to upload. For admission to Integrated Product Design (IPD) an engineering-based industrial design degree is required.

At IDE, we expect MSc students to take an active approach in defining their personal learning path.

In addition to the programme specific requirements mentioned above, applicants must meet TU Delft’s general admission requirements for international applicants.
