The Department of Industrial Design (ID) of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), founded in 2001, is a rapidly growing department with over 650 students, both Bachelor and Master, and around 40 research staff members and about 10 lecturers. ID focuses on creating intelligent systems, products, and related services in a societal context. These a priori innovative systems enable people to interact with the environment in an optimal and flexible way. The TU/e ID engineer, who has developed a wide range of competencies during his/her education, is capable of integrating technology, user aspects, design and business/marketing insights. While the BSc is more focused on interaction design, in the MSc students can focus on researching, realizing or valorising more complex systems. They learn to design in projects that are closely related to ongoing research. Internet of things and data-inspired design in the contexts of mobility health and wellbeing draw special attention within TU/e and ID in particular.
TU/e is a leading international university of technology specializing in Engineering Science & Technology. Through excellent teaching and research we contribute to progress in the technical sciences, to the development of technological innovations, and as a result to the growth of prosperity and welfare in the region and beyond. TU/e maintains close links with industry, healthcare and the building and logistics sectors.
