Designing new products and improving existing ones is a continual process. Take the Masterís in IDE and discover the full potential of the interaction between design and engineering.
Ten years ago, many of todayís 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 Masterís in IDE gives you the know-how to make it happen. This programme combines design, engineering, technology and the social sciences. You will go beyond the mere circuitry of electronic equipment to design and improve products that are part of peopleís everyday lives. You will consider their safety, affordability and sustainability, with the user experience as a key frame of reference. 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. The world needs well-rounded developers with a feeling for the integrated development of smart technologies. Fast-developing technologies in combination with ever shorter time-to-market will only increase the demand for IDE professionals who are able to cross traditional boundaries and apply a wide range of skills.
