Product design at Industrial Design Engineering in Delft is regarded as a systematic and structured activity, purposeful and goal-oriented. Due to its complexity, designing requires a structured and systematic approach, as well as moments of heightened creativity. In this guide you will find strategies, techniques and methods that are taught in Delft. Some are unique to Delft, but many are more commonly known and widely used. The methods and techniques are each described in a practical one-page text, illustrated for further clarification and enriched with further reading suggestions.
