Delft Design History

Welcome to the website on the history of the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. The school was founded in the 1960s with modest means, a few lecturers and two students. The faculty has since grown into an international teaching and research institution. Over the years, fierce debates took place about different approaches to design education, the staff developed all kinds of scientific research programmes and the faculty moved from a small attic, by way of various locations, to a large building of its own at the heart of the TU Delft campus. This website offers an introduction to 45 years of teaching and research on design, and to the people who were involved in this.
