The Delft Design Guide presents an overview of product design approaches and methods used in the Bachelor and Master curriculum at the faculty of Industrial Design Engineering in Delft.
Product design at Industrial Design Engineering in Delft is regarded as a systematic and structured activity, purposeful and goal-oriented. Due to its complexity, designing requires a structured and systematic approach as well as moments of heightened creativity. In this guide we restrict ourselves deliberately to approaches we teach in Delft. Although we are aware of others, they are not included in this design guide. The design guide is largely based on existing books and articles; where possible we have tried our best to refer to these works in the appropriate form.

The objectives of the Delft Design Guide are threefold:

design students can use it as a ‘first aid’ in their design projects, managing their personal development of becoming a designer;
design tutors can use it as a reference manual to support students in their learning process; and
professional designers can user the design guide as a reference manual to support their design processes.

Most of the content of the Delft Design Guide is being trained in five bachelor design courses:

PO1: Introduction Industrial Design (IO1010, 7,5ects)
PO2: Concept Design (IO1050, 7,5ects)
PO3: Fuzzy Front End (IO2010, 7,5ects)
PO4: Materialization and Detailing (IO2050. 7,5ects)
BFP: Bachelor Final project (IO3900, 15ects)
Remark: the Delft Design Guide presents an overview; short descriptions of approaches and methods. For learning designers it is needed to study more into detail using references mentioned in the guide.

Doel is inzicht te krijgen in het Nederlandse watersysteem en dijken - en polderlandschap. Het watersysteem is een dynamisch complex van regenwater, rivieren en zeeĚřnvloeden. De studenten moeten leren begrijpen hoe dit systeem werkt, en welke plannen er zijn om de gevolgen van actuele en toekomstige klimaatsveranderingen het hoofd te bieden. Zowel veiligheid als ecologie, zowel landbouw als scheepvaart en havenactiviteiten zijn daarbij belangrijk. Bij het landschap, dat mede is gevormd door het water, gaat het om het onderscheiden van de verschillende typen van natuurlijke en gevormde landschappen, van buitendijkse en binnendijkse gebieden met bijbehorende hoogtes.Ten behoeve van de analyse van het landschap moet men kennis krijgen van de verschillende groen-blauwe legenda eenheden: polderwater en boezemwater, vaarroutes en natuurlijk water, agrarisch: veeteelt en akkerbouw/open tuinbouw, recreatief: intensief en extensief, natuur en bos. Dit landschap wordt beschouwd als de ondergrond voor verdere landschapsvorming en de verstedelijking, die heeft plaatsgevonden. Onderdeel van de regiovisie is om door studie en met behulp van tekeningen het water en landschap in en rond IJsselmonde te analyseren, gevolgd door planvoorstellen voor verstedelijking en landschap op regionaal niveau. De inzichten in landschap en water vormen condities voor de ontwerpopgave van het tweede kwartaal, bestaande uit het maken van een plan voor een locatie op de rand van stad en water. Eind van het eerste of begin 2e kwartaal van de collegereeks komen dan ook principes van landschaps- en waterontwerp aan de orde.

The principles of rock mechancis explains the fundamental concepts of continuum mechanics and rheology as applied in studies of rock deformation. A thorough understanding of rock behavior is essential for strategic planning in the petroleum and mining industry, in construction operation, and in locating subsurface repositories. The formation of geological structures or rock deformation patterns, studied by geodynamicists and tectonicians, is, also governed by the mechanical principles outlined in this textbook. The aim of the present book is obvious: to inspire a new generation of positively forward-thinking geoscientists and engineers, skillful in and favorable to the practical application of mechanics to rock structures.

Het vak Redeneren en Logica gaat over redeneringen en hun geldigheid. Een redenering bestaat uit een aantal premissen, en een conclusie. Een redenering is geldig wanneer de conclusie altijd waar is wanneer de premissen dat zijn. Het kan, wanneer een redenering geldig is, dus niet voorkomen dat de premissen waar zijn, en de conclusie onwaar. Zo'n situatie heet een tegenvoorbeeld, en dat toont aan dat een redenering ongeldig is. Wanneer een redenering geldig is, heet hij een stelling ("theorem" in het engels), en kan men de conclusie afleiden uit de aannanme dat de premissen waar zijn. Zo'n afleiding heet een bewijs.

The course discusses several Geopgraphical Information System (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS) tools relevant for analysis of (problems in and aspects of) water systems. Within the course, several applications are introduced. These applications include GIS tools to determine mapping of surface water systems (catchment delineation, reservoirs and canal systems). The RS tools include determination of evaporation and soil moisture patterns, and measurement of water levels in surface water systems. In exercises and lectures, different tools and applications are offered. For each application, assignments are given to allow students to acquire relevant skills. The course structure combines assignments and introductory lectures. Each week participants work on one assignment. These assignments are discussed in the next lecture and graded. Each week a new assignment is introduced, together with supporting materials (an article discussing the relevant application) and lectures (introducing theoretical issues). The study material of the course consists of a study guide, assignments, lecture material and articles. The final mark is the average of the grades of the individual assignments.
