Industrial Design

Eindhoven University of Technology

Bachelor Undergraduate Eindhoven

Course description

Qualification Bachelor of Science
Field of study Engineering
Course summary The bachelor's program Industrial Design focuses on interactive systems, products and related services that change, intensify or make life more comfortable.
Course description This field is all about innovation, creativity, technology, user needs, aesthetics, societal and business interests. New technologies and issues arising from societal trends are translated into innovations for everyday life. Students work, for example, on applications that can personalize cars, or on intelligent clothing that stimulates people to live a more active lifestyle. The educational program of the bachelor's program Industrial Design is based on self-directed and competency-centered learning. You work as a junior employee in a design team on a design project together with fellow students. You are coached by several experts and work closely together with researchers of the department. The international staff of the program comprises teachers and supervisors that are partly practitioners from the field. They have their own design firm or work for a company. No wonder there's a close collaboration with companies and institutions, and a considerable focus on project based learning. Since Industrial Design is a very internationally oriented field, the official language of the bachelor's program is English.
Study subjects The first year focuses on building an awareness of the areas of expertise related to Industrial Design. In the second year you learn various design and research approaches and broaden your attitude, skills and knowledge. The third year is about strengthening your vision and identity outside of the Department and about demonstrating your overall competence of designing in an individual design project.
Course objectives As our society is rapidly evolving there is a need for professionals with the ability to respond and anticipate creatively and flexibly to new and unpredictable changes.
