Our ambition is to teach our students to design the right things right. We aim to prepare our students for the real world by:

  • training a lot of hands-on prototyping techniques to get a realistic view on a concept or product.

  • offering students real-life cases with clients and industry

  • stimulating entrepreneurship and start-ups

  • making each student a co-owner of their education program

For companies our students are your source of creativity!  
Collaborate with our students during:

  • Design assignments

  • Project weeks

  • Internship and graduation projects 

  • Postgraduate Industrial Design Engineering honours programme

Our habitat is the Industrial Design Center (IDC) which is our open knowledge center where industry, research and education meet, make and co-create.
