Lucid is the study association that supports the Industrial Design students at the University of Technology Eindhoven in their studies. Lucid organises activities focussed on education, career and leisure. It all started in 2002, when the study association was established. Ever since the amount of Industrial Design students grew and so did the amount of active Lucid members. More and more committees started, organising study trips and workshops, facilitating the Lucid.Bar and combining text, media and graphics to create UNiD magazine. Next to all these committees and their activities, there is also room for initiatives by our members. From a mindfulness evening, to a workshop given by an excited master student, Lucid is practically up for anything.

This is the Seventeenth Board of Lucid, “Radiant Red”. During the association year 2017-2018 these six people oversee the maintainance the association. With the move to Atlas coming up, Radiant Red has the honour to secure the Lucid ambiance during the move from Laplace to Atlas.
With the 16th birthday of Lucid this year, the association has become quite mature. The Seventeenth board feels that the acquisition process and finances of the association should grow mature as well. Last but not least, especially with the enormous increase of first year members, Radiant Red wants to involve as many people possible and above all have a lot of fun during this year!

Lucid’s committees are the driving force behind this organization, they make it possible to organise a large variety of activities throughout the year. Two times a year the ‘committee market’ takes place where committees that are still in need of members or committees that are brand new, can find interested students and vice versa. Different committees start each year, which one are presented below.


EduCie stands for Educational Committee. As their name states, the EduCie organizes several educational activities such as workshops, (lunch) lectures and excursions.

UNiD Magazine

The UNiD is Lucid’s official design magazine. It is made by Lucid members, for Lucid members. It covers stories about the faculty, Industrial Design, companies, student projects and more design.


The Lucid.Bar is the place for Industrial Design students and staff to gather, have a drink, have a laugh and most importantly relax after a hard day of work at the faculty.


A study association without parties is like cornflakes without milk. Therefore Lucid’s Awesome Party Department arranges a minimum of three parties throughout the year and an occasional pub crawl.

Introduction week

In August the TU/e introduction week is organised so new students can get to know each other, their study and this city. This committee makes sures that this will be a week that will never be forgotten.

End of the Year Trip

The world offers many interesting places and people in the field of design. Over the years we visited many places, this year’s committee is organising a trip to the USA.

First Years Trip

To facilitate first years in their discovery towards becoming a desinger, we explore some international design together. This year’s destination was Barcelona.

First Years Weekend

At the beginning of the academic year this committee organises a weekend full of activities, laughter and bonfires, so all new students can get to know each other better.

Conduct Festival

In September Lucid’s very first edition of the multidisciplinary electronic festival took place: Conduct. This committee will make sure the second edition will be just as great.

DDW Committee

Every year Lucid organises a new event or exposition at the DDW. This year’s committee is working on a big netwerk event called: ‘ ID Connect.’

Lustrum Committee

Every five years we celebrate a special birthday. This year’s committee is accommodating in celebrating the third lustum of our association.


Wervingsdagen is a committee of all study associations at the TU/e. Every year they organize skill sessions, the career expo and interviewing days.

Year Movie Committee

Every year Lucid tries to make a visual representaion of the year. This year the activities will not be immortalized in a booklet, instead this committee is making a movie.


The photopool consists of a number of dedicated photographers who will be present on the most important Lucid activities to make sure they can be remembered forever.

Committee of Difficult Things

Today’s digital society is full of difficult things. This committee uses it’s programming skills to take care of all Lucid’s difficult digital things.

Financial Control Committee

The Financial control committee makes sure that the (half year) results of Lucid and the bar are thoroughly checked before they are reviewed by the GMM.

UNiD Magazine

The UNiD is the magazine of Lucid, made by hard working students to ensure three issues are published each academic year. The goals of the UNiD is to gather valuable knowledge and information from inside and outside the faculty, and to communicate that to the students of Industrial Design. The UNiD Committee simulates a professional editorial office where the teams of writers, graphics, and media are working together to ensure the best and most beautyful magazine for you.
