In 2013, the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering of TU Delft launched the first series of intensive two-day, state-of-the-art Master Classes developed specifically for design professionals. 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.

The successful first series was followed by four equally inspiring series in the years after. All the Master Classes in each series have been well attended and evaluated extremely positively. In total, more than 300 different participants from more than 180 companies have attended. The level of interest expressed by participants in new topics has given the faculty more than enough reasons for hosting this new series, starting in March 2018:

14 and 15 March: Creative Facilitation by Marc Tassoul

18 and 25 April: Lean Innovation by Gert Hans Berghuis

16 and 17 May: Customer Experience Innovation by Erik Roscam Abbing

20 and 21 June: Material Driven Design by Elvin Karana

26 and 27 September: Design for Emotion and Happiness by Pieter Desmet and Anna Pohlmeyer

17 and 18 October: Design Visualization by JanWillem Hoftijzer

22 and 22 November: Design for the Circular Economy by Conny Bakker and Bas Flipsen

In these small-scale Master Classes with 10 to 16 participants, you work closely with other design professionals and the ‘Master’, to get the utmost from these inspiring days. Each Master Class combines theory with interactive assignments and group cases: you directly apply what you learn. This is a great way to meet the experts and work with other experienced designers, expanding your network, and creating new opportunities. Learn from the experts as well as from each other!

The standard fee for a single Master Class ranges from € 950 to € 750 for alumni (free from VAT). If you register for multiple Master Classes in 2018, you get a reduction of € 100 for each additional Master Class. On top of that, if you register before 1 March 2018, you receive an extra reduction of € 100 for each Master Class.
