The Post Graduate Course Industrial Design (ID) has existed since 1950 and is the oldest acknowledged course in the field of Design and Industrial Design in the Netherlands. Prominent individuals including Gerrit Rietveld, Frans de La Haye and Renny Ramakers were either students or teachers at this particular course.

ID is a part-time education for students from an international field and its scope is between industrial design and design -offering the right mix of skills, culture and industry. Jacob de Baan initiated major changes in the profile of the course. 

Profile of the study 

Teachers who are full-time professionals in their respective fields teach the postgraduate course. Teachers and guest teachers are invited on the basis of the relevance of their design activities, and the required knowledge and skills. As a result, the reality level of the course will be high. The various backgrounds of the students will also provide added value.

Location and times

The course consists of six separate blocks of half a year each. The student will receive credits for each block, resulting in the diploma after six blocks. The classes will be in the KABK building, Prinsessegracht 4 in The Hague. Outside classes and during regular opening hours of the Academy, students may use the various workshops any time of the week.
