Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering

Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering is one of the world’s leading design schools and a second home to over 2000 students and 350 researchers. Referred to as IO in local jargon, which is short for its Dutch name Industrieel Ontwerpen, our faculty acts as the bridge between advancements in technology and the needs of people, organisations and society.

IO has celebrated its 50th birthday in 2019. What started in the 60s as a modest program with a few lecturers and two students, has grown into a faculty that trains purpose-driven designers with strong links to businesses, public bodies and NGOs, as well as its alumni, who bring their design skills to a wide range of sectors and disciplines on a daily basis. 

We are happy to welcome you at IO for RSD10! But until then, we invite you to read more on our history, purpose and projects on our website.

City of Delft

Delft is a historic city located in the southwest of the Netherlands with a population around 100.000. Its picturesque canals, well preserved 17th century architecture and cute cafes make it very difficult to not to fall in love with Delft at first sight. 

The city is internationally famous for its long standing tradition of handmade tin-glazed pottery known as Delftware. Delft has been home to well-known artists and scientists including Johannes Vermeer, the painter of ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ and Anthonie van Leeuwenhoek, who is known to be the father of microbiology.

Delft is connected very well to the rest of the country both by car and by public transportation. There is a direct train connection between Amsterdam Schiphol Airport and Delft every 30 minutes. Larger cities such as Rotterdam and Den Haag are just a short train (or bike?) ride away. Being one of the most touristic cities of the Netherlands, Delft has a variety of accommodation options that will make sure you will never want to leave. 

We are looking forward to strolling around the canals of Delft with you! More information on accommodation and transportation options will be uploaded here soon.
