Industrial Design Engineering (Transferminor/doorstroomminor)

This transfer minor is designed for all students who would like to deepen their knowledge within the field of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) and are interested in a scientific approach. This minor’s goal is to prepare you for the Master programme.

This means you will be taught various scientific skills and your skills in Mathematics will be improved. You will also attend several courses related to industrial design engineering. After successfully completing this transfer minor and having  obtained your degree from a University of Applied Sciences you will be able to immediately start the Master programme Industrial Design Engineering. 

Topics which will be addressed in this minor:

  • Academic and research skills emphasizing writing a research proposal and scientific paper.
  • Industrial Design courses, these may differ depending on your previous education
  • Mathematics

The University of Twente wants students to be aware that it is required to have a minimum level of English and Mathematics B on VWO-level this is the own responsibility of the student.

Previous experiences have shown that hardly any students manage to succesfully complete the transfer minor if they do not comply with these requirements. If necessary, additional courses are available at Boswell-Bèta or the Open University (or at Saxion for Saxion students). We urge students to brush up their knowledge if they are in doubt of meeting this level.

Leerdoelen

After successfully completing this transfer minor, depending on his previous education, the student has knowledge in different fields for example regarding to:

Research skills:

  • Explain what scientific research is, what kind of research there is and how the quality can be guaranteed.
  • Set up a research plan, perform literature research and form research questions and goals.
  • Process, analyse and interpret research data
  • Write a scientific paper and hold a presentation in English
  • Be able to critically reflect on the results of others.

Mathematics:      

  • Formulate definitions and properties of functions or variables.
  • Solve first and second order equations
  • Use and calculate complex numbers
  • Solve functions of two variables

Human product relations:

  • Be able to see the interaction between humans and products from different perspectives.
  • develop possibilities to influence the human-product relationship during the product design and coordinate the different phases and perspectives of the product development cycle for the benefit of that cycle as a whole.

Graphic design :

  • Provide the supporting graphic design of a product presentation
  • Design the product information - such as use, danger and legal aspects.

 Product market relations:

  • Describe key concepts of marketing and understand how marketing can promote success in the market and that the success of a product is not just the design.

Design and sketching:

  • apply perspective, construction and basic principles of marking in sketches
  • use signs as tools from an early stage of the design process ( thought formation) and as means of communication within design practice

Physical ergonomics:

  • Perform motion and task analysis.
  • Calculate maximum acceptable forces that a user can deliver.
  • Apply the results of the above analyses and calculations in the design process

This transfer minor prepares you for the Master Industrial Design Engineering. If you successfully complete the transfer minor within one year you will be admissible to the Master after you have completed your degree from your University of Applied Sciences (HBO)

As a designer you have an overview of the design as a whole and not just the technical aspects. You are aware of how products are used on a daily basis and can focus on how a production process is managed successfully which also involves communicating with different target groups such as customers and buyers. You can also focus on new technologies in the consumer market.

Aanvullende informatie

The programme is entirely in English, as is the required literature.

Ingangseisen

This transfer minor is recommended only for those students of Universities of Applied Sciences (HBO) who have obtained good grades throughout their educational programme. The transfer minor is designed for students who have the motivation and capacity to obtain an academic degree from an English-taught Master programme.

Only students enrolled in a related educational programme such as Mechanical Engineering or Industrial Design are admissible to this transfer minor, see also www.doorstroommatrix.nl.  In some cases where the students prior education is not related to the Masters programme, the examination board can make an exception. An individual request for this must be submitted to the contact person below.

The University of Twente assumes that all students who sign up for a transfer minor have a minimum level of English and Mathematics (VWO-level English and Mathematics B). This is the students own responsibility. Previous experiences have shown that hardly any students manage to successfully complete the transfer minor if they do not comply with these requirements. If necessary, additional courses are available at Boswell-Bèta or the Open University (or at Saxion for Saxion students).

Also students must have obtained at least 120 ECTS at their University of Applied Sciences in order to be admitted to the transfer minor.
