Ten years ago, many of today’s products did not exist or were nothing more than prototypes of their current selves. Ten years from now, these same products will have evolved even further, maybe thanks to you. The Master’s in Industrial Design Engineering gives you the know-how to make it happen. 

The Industrial Design Engineering offered by University of Twente (UT)  combines design, engineering, technology and the social sciences. You will go beyond the mere circuitry of electronic equipment to design and improve products that are part of people’s everyday lives. You will consider their safety, affordability and sustainability, with the user experience as a key frame of reference.
