Education IDThe educational programme of the Department of Industrial Design (ID) at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) distinguishes itself by its foundational duo of focus, and educational approach, namely:
• Focus: intelligent systems, products and related services for social/societal transformation
• Educational approach: competency-centred learning
The department concentrates on the design of intelligent systems, products and related services, which addresses aspects such as adaptive behaviour, context-awareness and highly dynamic interaction. The traditional focus of industrial design on products is moving more and more towards systems. At ID we see systems as adaptive environments in which humans can interact with intelligent products to gain access to services provided. These intelligent products are connected to each other and the surrounding system to achieve a new type of user experience. Especially the shift towards the complexity of systems and the non-physical aspects of services requires different competencies from designers.
