Over the past decades products have become more and more complex; whether it is added functionality or tougher recycling demands. Logically the design of successful products has become increasingly complex as well; the master of Integrated Product Design teaches how to bring these complex aspects together.

Description

Advertisement

The Integrated Product Design (IPD) Masterís programme focuses on teaching how to design user-centered innovative products and product service combinations, based on a balance between the interests of users, business and societal challenges. It covers the entire design process, starting from a design brief and ending with a complete product that is fit for mass or small series production. Thus the emphasis of the IPD master is on teaching conceptualisation and embodiment design, by applying systematic state-of-the-art theories and methodologies, and by integrating user, technology and business aspects. The identity of the IPD Masterís programme is determined by the coherent integration of all these aspects to come to a successful new product proposal; this makes the IPD Masterís programme challenging, exciting and unique.

The international product development arena is changing rapidly; products are becoming smarter, better integrated into systems and have to comply with increasingly stringent standards. Product development is moving from an inter-disciplinary to a transdisciplinary occupation, becoming more knowledge intensive and therefore in need of continuous updates of tools and methods.

The IPD Masterís programme provides an integrated approach to the disciplines involved: advanced studies in innovative design theory and methods, aesthetics, ergonomics, engineering, and sustainability. The IPD curriculum includes multidisciplinary applied research on innovative product development embedded in its product design projects.

Requirements

Admission Requirements:

In most cases, if you hold a BSc degree and the Masterís programme is closely related to your Bachelorís programme, you will be admitted directly into the programme. However, if the Masterís programme does not follow directly from your undergraduate programme, you will be required to take additional courses in what is called a bridging programme. This may be a standard programme, or it may be tailored to your specific situation.

International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to universities in Netherlands when:

  • You are considered ineligible for admission
  • You need to improve your academic, study, research or language skills
