IDE Master Classes

In 2013, we launched the first series of IDE Master Classes. This successful first series was followed by 3 equally inspiring series. All the Master Classes in each series have been well attended and evaluated extremely positively. In total, about 250 different participants from more than 150 companies have attended the three series. The level of interest expressed by participants in new topics has given us more than enough reasons for hosting this fifth series, starting in March 2017.

IDE Master Classes - edition 2017

We are happy and proud to introduce our new series of IDE Master Classes, which includes two brand new Masterclasses: Brand Driven Design by Jeroen van Erp, and Thing-Centered Design by Elisa Giaccardi. In addition, the Masterclass Service Design has been extended. Four IDE Master Classes will be returning to the programme.

What are IDE Master Classes?

IDE Master Classes are a series of intensive two-day, state-of-the-art Master Classes developed specifically for design professionals. They are embedded within one of the world’s most forward-thinking design education programmes at TU Delft’s faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. The Master Classes are given by leaders in the design field, all of them top lecturers or alumni from the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, working in a range of disciplines of the continuously developing design field.

Why participate in IDE Master Classes?

The IDE Master Classes programme was developed to support the professional development of design practitioners. In groups of 10 to 16 participants, you gain insights into recent developments in the discipline, learning about the latest methods and tools currently being taught to new generations of designers. For many of you working in the field of design, this has proved an extremely effective way to refine your skills, focus your ambition, and/or simply broaden your mind and be inspired!

Each Master Class combines theory with interactive assignments and group cases: you directly apply what you learn. This is a great way of meeting the experts and working with other experienced designers, expanding your network, and creating new opportunities.

Learn from the experts as well as from each other!
