The mission of the department of Industrial Design at TU/e is
Research on and Education in the Design of Systems with Emerging Technologies in a Societal Context
With this mission, we excel at the integration of various academic disciplines, including engineering, business and social sciences. This puts us in a strong position regarding the acquisition and execution of projects where “integration of emerging technology into everyday life” and “application of technology in a societal context” play a major role. This makes us unique among design departments world-wide and provides a solid basis for collaborations in international consortia, industrial research projects and within the university.
