Graduate school

The Graduate School of the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (GS-IDE) supports PhD candidates at IDE by focusing on three aims:

  • Providing each PhD candidate with a PhD mentor, who facilitates the PhD process.
  • Offering Doctoral Education courses specifically tuned to the needs of PhD candidates at IDE.
  • Organising events, such as PhD-Day, to promote the research community at IDE.

GS-IDE is one of the eight faculty graduate schools which operates under the umbrella of the TU Delft Graduate School (GS-TUD). All PhD candidates who started their PhD project at IDE in September 2011 or later are part of both the GS-IDE and GS-TUD. For those who started before September 2011, see the 'old-style' PhD page.

The GS-TUD provides general support for all PhD candidates at the TU Delft. Visit the GS-TUD website for more information.
