Electives

At Industrial Design, electives allow you to acquire knowledge and skills in specific areas of expertise that should contribute to your overall competence of designing. 

In addition to the electives offered by Industrial Design, you can also take electives at other departments of Eindhoven University of Technology. You should choose the electives that best match your learning goals and that contribute most to your intended development, as derived from your professional identity and vision. 

The mentor supports you in the process of decision-making. Choosing electives supports the development of an expertise profile and the career track you wish to pursue.

Planning

You can register for electives in Osiris, via MyTU/e. If you have registered for more electives than you can take, please deregister in Osiris. There are only a limited number of seats available per elective. If the registration deadline has passed, please send an e-mail to the Educational Office via id.education@tue.nl, they will handle deregistration for you.

When less than 16 students have registered for an elective upon the closing of the subscription period (5 working days before Q1 and 15 working days before Q2, 3 and 4), the course might be cancelled. The students involved will be contacted by the Educational Office so they can register for another course.
