After completing the broadly-based Bachelor’s programme, you can progress to the Master’s programme in industrial design: Industrial Design Engineering. In this course you can improve your skills in a number of different specializations. You can do this at the University of Twente or at other Dutch or foreign universities. The Master’s programme lasts two years and is entirely in English. If you take the Master’s programme in Industrial Design Engineering, you can choose between a set of specializations, listed below.
IMPROVE YOUR SKILLS AS AN INDUSTRIAL ENGINEER: ENROLL IN A MASTERTRACK AND SPECIALIZE YOUR KNOWLEDGE GAINED FROM THE BACHELOR
ETD is the most technical track of Industrial Design Engineering. This mastertrack is focused on teaching students how to introduce new technologies into the consumer market, instead of introducing a technology for a single specific product. The goal is to decrease the distance between the research environment and the industry and market. The track has its own sub-tracks, namely:
Mastertrack coördinator: Emile van der Heide
Industrial Design Engineering teaches students to make technology available for users. In HTR this is done by focusing on the exploration and design or products that serves the problems and aspirations of people on an individual, social or societal level. In HTR, students learn to design the connection between people and technology from a people oriented perspective.
Mastertrack coordinator: Wouter Eggink
MoPD is the track that focuses on the managing aspects of Industrial Design Engineering. In MoPD, you are trained to improve development cycles as a whole, integrate expertise from all domains and fields in product development and emanate from actually doing product design and development. This track offers the student the possibility to analyse, develop, implement and evaluate generic working methods, but also to elaborate them in a selected area of product development.
