You could be an innovator at Philips or develop 3D printing technology for a small production company that makes custom-made shoes for the consumer market. Or you could set up your own enterprise based on one of the ideas you developed during your studies. There are many opportunities once you complete IDE and begin your career. But as a young professional, you do much more. You’ll discover the culture at your company and what the profession does on a daily basis. You’ll attend meetings and company parties. You’ll also learn all there is to know about your market - the latest developments, the competition and what they do.

If you’re academically inclined, you may want to follow a masters after graduating from IDE. There are no masters at THUAS that complement IDE. However, in the Netherlands, there are three universities of technology that offer interesting and fitting masters. You should note that some universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-masters course after graduating from THUAS. Sometimes you can get in right away with your portfolio. You can take a masters in design after graduation just about anywhere else in the world where a bachelor of science is accepted.
