There are a lot of introductory workshops in year one. You’ll be continually working on design projects on IDE. From day one you’ll be convincing real companies and NGOs, like Bosch or Doctors without Borders, how your brilliant ideas can fill a gap in the market. In the first semester, you’ll reinforce your new professional experience with workshops and skills in the Basics of IDE. This includes user research, construction, business and personal branding, visual communication, prototyping and learning the necessary 2D/3D software programmes.
In year one, you’ll also get to make your first choice for the second semester. Will you go for Product Engineering, Strategic Design or Design Aesthetics and Perception? Your choice is important because it focuses your area of expertise.
There are three profiles in Industrial Design Engineering at The Hague University of Applied Sciences: Explorer, Creator and Entrepreneur. Some semesters focus on one or two of these profiles, so you can choose what fits you best.
You could be an innovator at Philips or develop 3D printing technology for a small production company that makes custom-made shoes for the consumer market. Or you could set up your own enterprise based on one of the ideas you developed during your studies. There are many opportunities once you complete IDE and begin your career. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do.
