The faculties of Industrial Design Engineering and Architecture and the Built Environment developed this minor in order to offer both a broad foundation and in-depth knowledge of advanced prototyping. This provides insight into how and when these techniques can be applied in design processes. The minor covers both craftsmanship and computer-aided techniques, in a programme of multidisciplinary projects, guest lectures and workshops. The results can be incorporated directly into your portfolio.
Modelling, Rapid Prototyping and the hybrids between physical and digital forms play an important role in many design projects. There is a demand for a broad, interdisciplinary foundation in this field from both students and the business community.
Selection takes place by means of a random draw, the following formula is used:
- 1/3 students of the TU Delft Faculty of Industrial Design,
- 1/3 students of the TU Delft Faculty of Architecture,
- 1/3 students from other Engineering related programs.
This allocation is done to meet the interdisciplinary nature of the minor. Minors of the IDE faculty are open only for students from academic programs.
