Workspaces Atlas

At TU/e’s Industrial Design department we consider our students junior employees working at our design studio. This means you are given the opportunity to work on projects for clients, use the labs and facilities of our department, and learn and grow as a designer. Being a junior employee also comes with a responsibility, to yourself and the department. We expect you to behave in a professional manner, take care of your, the department’s and other people’s belongings and make the most of your time studying here. As a junior employee you are expected to work on your classes and projects full-time in the Atlas building. This provides opportunity for exchange of knowledge and experience. It also enables expertise and community building for the individual and the department of Industrial Design.
