Industrial Design Engineering
In your daily life you are continuously surrounded by products. Why are they shaped the way they are? What user demands do they meet, what processes lie behind the development, and what technologies are involved in that process? That’s what the Master’s in Industrial Design Engineering at the University of Twente is all about. This two-year, English-taught Master’s provides you with in-depth, scientific insights which enable you to design and engineer (a part of) an innovative product that enriches people’s lives. Moreover, you can overlook and improve the whole development process. Within this Master’s, you will build expertise within one of the three specialisations: Emerging Technology Design, Human Technology Relations, or Management of Product Development.
The demand for industrial design engineers is eminent and still growing, as innovation and smart design are gaining importance in our society. After graduating you can fulfill a wide variety of jobs. Whether you want to become a specialist in engineering a specific type of product, the manager that oversees the whole production process, or the researcher who applies the newest scientific insights in product design: you can become the industrial design engineer you want to be.
