Delft design guide

Course subject(s) Readings


The faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at the Delft University of Technology has a rich tradition in developing and teaching models and methods for product and service design. In this course, you have the opportunity to get introduced to some of the basic principles that underlie the way we teach design in Delft and to some of  the key methods and tools that we use to teach design.

Most of the methods that we use in our design program in Delft have been recently published in the Delft Design Guide. This guide presents an overview of models, perspectives and methods used in the Bachelor and Master curriculum. Some of the reading material for this course is from the Delft Design Guide and is available on the course pages as pdf’s in the appropriate weeks. If you are interested in all of the methods in the guide you can order the book at the publisher or via bookstores.
