The Industrial Design student

One of the main functions of Lucid is to support their members, the Industrial Design students, with their education. This includes a few things: Discount on study books, extra-curricular activities and a voice of the students towards the faculty and university. Describing all students is a challenge, the study description and graphic below makes it a bit easier.

Explanation of Industrial Design

In order to understand Lucid its important to understand the members, the Industrial Design students. With the following description and info graphic the students and the study is well explained.

Study description

The goal of the study Industrial Design is to create interactive products, systems and services in a societal context. The study is an umbrella for different disciplines which means the students have a coherent overview of different areas of expertise. This overview makes it easy for an Industrial Design student to link the disciplines within a design process. A designer constantly has to adapt to changes in technology and society. At the faculty of Industrial Design, students learn to take control over their own knowledge, skills and development. When the students run into something unfamiliar to them or something they have never done before they can adapt their education and teach themselves new skills. Next to that, the students from our faculty are very open-minded and creative and always up for something different or new.

 

The students

Industrial Design students are translators; they translate problems into solutions and wishes into product specifications. In this way, Industrial Design students form a bridge between technology and people. They reason from users to make technology intuitive for them. Industrial Design students have knowledge of many different disciplines and therefore are very versatile in their work. Every student has his own unique expertise but also has knowledge of the other competences.

Study books

Through Lucid, students can place orders for study books they need or want. Especialy for the first years students it's important to get their books in time and for that matter, Lucid makes sure to communicate the instructions and deadlines in time.
