Non-Dutch BSc degree

Strategic Product Design

The Strategic Product Design programme requires design skills and a thorough understanding of the product development process. 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 important as students will cooperate in project teams. English proficiency is very important for successful participation in project teams. Furthermore, as an SPD student it is essential to couple human aspects, technology aspects and business aspects. Finally, it is crucial for SPD students to have a thorough interest in the strategic and business aspects in design.

Each 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 send in. An academic credential in or closely related to design is required. Work experience and non-degree coursework will also be taken into consideration.

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