DCED symposium


TU Delft has decided to commit itself in forming the Delft Center for Engineering Design (DCED), a joint force ready for collaboration with industry through research programs and educational activities.

Three faculties participate in the DCED program:

Within DCED, academic staff from different domains works close together to share and develop knowledge on product development processes beyond product technology.

Our academic staff is specialized in product development technologies such as knowledge-based engineering, multi-disciplinairy optimization, multiple-model management, engineering knowledge integration and management, design for maintenance, design for sustainability, life cycledesign, systems integration and systems engineering.

Applicability of our technologies is mainly focused on products that require early accurate prediction or significant improvement of quality, cost and performance to manage and control development risks.

Our Vision

The complexity and multi-disciplinarity of engineerings designs will continue to increase. Controlling time and cost of their industrial developments needs fast changes in product development technologies.

Our Mission

Collaborative research with industry of product development technologies for engineering designs and education of professionals in this field.
