You can choose to translate new technologies into useful everyday products and systems, or to focus on innovating on a community level, aimed at solving major societal issues.
Ever since its start, the Industrial Design department has used a unique, self-directed, competence-focused educational approach. From your first day, you will be encouraged to develop your own vision and professional identity as a designer.
The Industrial Design program at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) only has two mandatory courses; you can choose rest of the program based on your vision and ambitions.
As a graduate of the Industrial Design master’s degree program, you are a unique designer, entrepreneur or researcher with a lot of initiative.
Our alumni distinguish themselves with their pro-active, hands-on attitude, with prototyping as an essential part of their design and research process.
An Industrial Design engineer has the capacity to integrate multiple disciplines and come up with functional solutions.
