Ir. Crone, H.E.C.
Henk Crone is lecturer at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering.
After graduating form Industrial Design Engineering in 2000, I started in Delft at a company where I was the first product designer. After lots of product designs and realizations, leading the design team and winning design awards, I decided to start my own design company in 2007. That was also the first time I started lecturing at this faculty. My own company lasted for three years where I was still designing lots of products. There I found out that I wanted a more technical challenge after ten years of product design. That led me to Airborne International where I was a project leader for special projects for three years. Here I led a team and made a driving simulating dome, did gamechanger projects with Shell, or material research for space applications. In the mean time, still working on this faculty for 8 hours per week. Being a project leader at Airborne was too far from the design process, so again switched to being the lead designer at Seaborough research in Amsterdam, where we developed led-based products with the newest led technology. For instance led lighting on ski-pistes or UV-led applications for curing paint. Unfortunately, that job ended and again decided to find a new challenge. And that was lecturing at the TUDelft. Soon after starting here I was asked to lecture at the University of Applied Science Amsterdam. Now, in Amsterdam I am a lecturer and course coordinator, in Delft coach for bachelor and master students, and I'm also responsible for acquisition for the master course Advanced Embodiment Design.
