Master of Science in Integrated Product Design

Delft University of Technology

Program description

Integrated Product Design

The master of Integrated Product Design programme is a degree programme intended for those seeking professional mastery at the highest level in the field of product design.

Integrated Product Design is a systematic approach to product development that deals with all aspects relevant for the design of a new product, such as function, form, use, production, sales, economics and sustainability. The IPD master focuses on the integration of these aspects and covers all phases of the product development process. The IPD program centres around mass produced consumer products and includes product service systems and products for professional applications.

IPD students learn to adapt the design process to the demands of specific design problems and design contexts. They learn how to perform complex design activities with modern methods and advanced design technologies. They also learn to plan, execute and manage complex product development processes in multidisciplinary teams and distributed environments.

The IPD program offers a balanced mix of theory and practice. Courses like Design Manifestation, Ergonomics, Life Cycle Engineering, Smart Systems and Technologies, Advanced Design Support and two master projects provide students with advanced specialist knowledge relating to formgiving, design engineering, sustainability and design tools. In projects students learn to apply this knowledge to realistic complex design problems.

Line of business

Due to their multidisciplinary training, students with a Master in IPD are excellent candidates for functions in product development such as industrial designer, product designer, product engineer, design engineer and design project manager. IPD masters are also employed in technical-commercial functions such as product manager, customer support manager, quality manager and sales engineer.

The MSc programme in Integrated Product Design takes two years and after completion entitles to bear the MSc title (Dutch Ir.)
