Online Education

Industrial Design Engineering plays a key role in society. We are keen to share our educational and research expertise with others. For example, we provide IDE Master Classes on the latest scientific methods and designs, publish extensively in design and academic journals, and collaborate with industry and technical universities in the Netherlands and internationally. Online education is another way of sharing our knowledge.

Online education by the faculty

TU Delft offers ‘Massive Open Online Courses’ (MOOCs) on the edX-platform. A MOOC is an online course aiming at large-scale interactive participation and open access via the web. In addition to traditional course materials such as videos, readings, and problem sets, MOOCs provide interactive user forums that help build a community for the students, professors, and teaching assistants.
