The Industrial Design Engineering offered by University of Twente (UT)combines design, engineering, technology and the social sciences.

You will consider their safety, affordability and sustainability, with the user experience as a key frame of reference.

About

The Industrial Design Engineering is offered by University of Twente (UT). 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 still further, maybe thanks to you. The Master’s in IDE gives you the know-how to make it happen.

It takes professionals with a wide array of skills to develop consumer products. At the University of Twente you will not only learn how to design a product on paper, but explore the whole product development chain to become a professional product developer.

Career

IDE graduates go on to fulfil a range of jobs: industrial designer, product designer, product engineer, design engineer, design manager, product manager, interaction designer, researcher, usability consultant, design-centred researcher, strategic designer, brand manager, new product development project leader, innovation consultant and design-brand consultant.
