Admission

Dutch students (HBO or WO)

You have direct access to the TU/e-master’s program Industrial Design after completing the TU/e bachelor's program Industrial Design. This also goes for a bachelor's degree Industrial Design of Delft University of Technology or Industrial Design or Creative Technology of University of Twente. In these cases you can apply directly. 

Do you have a relevant, Dutch bachelor's degree that doesn’t grant direct admission to the Industrial Design master? In that case you can send a request for admission to the Departmental Admissions Board (FTC). There are four possible outcomes: 

  • direct admission to the master’s program,
  • admission to the master’s program in which you will take one, two or three bachelor courses to work on  your ‘deficiencies’,
  • admission to the premaster,
  • no admission.

Foreign students

Do you have a foreign bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) and want to enroll in the master’s program of Industrial Design? In that case TU/e's International Office first assesses your admission. Therefore we refer you to the general pages about bachelor from a university outside the Netherlands.

After that, you send in a request for admission. This will be assessed by our Departmental Admissions Board (FTC). Again, there are four possible outcomes:

  • direct admission to the master’s program,
  • admission to the master’s program in which you will take one, two or three bachelor courses to work on your ‘deficiencies’,
  • admission to the premaster (possible only for EER-students),
  • no admission.
