About me

Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Camiel Lemmens, and I’m on course to finish my bachelor’s degree of Industrial Design Engineering (BSc) at the University of Twente. This means that I’m currently looking for a company where I can do my bachelor’s assignment, the final exercise of my bachelor’s degree. If you’re interested in fishing in the large talent pool of Industrial Design Engineering students, and you want to know more about this bachelor’s assignment, please read further on this website!

About me

What value am I to you?

Industrial Designers add value to companies that design and manufacture consumer products, since this study provides the best balance between technology and applied sciences on one end, and human factors and marketing on the other. In short, we learn to design products that are efficient and sustainable throughout their life cycle, while always considering the user’s desires, wishes, and preferences. When developing a product, choosing materials, finishes, production processes, colours, shapes, sizes, and a whole lot more is a difficult task. Industrial Designers help to create overview in this situation in order to create a product that is easy to manufacture and keeps clients returning.

Due to my interest in sustainable design, efficient manufacturing, and various other DfX disciplines, I can help you developing and adapting designs and supply chains to suit more efficient and sustainable production technologies. I am eager to work on such developments, combining knowledge from several sciences and leading them onto the way of more efficient manufacturing. My keen grasp of target group’s needs and desires means that such design adaptations never sacrifice customer satisfaction.

About the assignment

What am I looking for?

You're probably wondering what the details and characteristics of such a final assignment are. To clear things up, here are the answers to frequently asked questions. The text below has been provided by the University of Twente. More information and details can be requested.

The programme Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) focuses on product development and combines expertises from mechanical engineering, marketing, aesthetics, and ergonomics. Since the development of good products is essential for companies and the welfare of their users, students are trained in developing innovative solutions that fit the market. The different aspects are integrated in several projects in which students participate during their Bachelor’s (BSc) programme. The student finishes this programme with a final assignment. The assignment compasses a practical project of 3 months resulting in a (product)design and a project report. After finishing the Bachelor programme, our students are able to function as designers in rather complicated product development projects.

The assignment’s goal is to show competence as an Industrial Designer at Bachelor’s level. Therefore the student should -by fulfilling the assignment- show the following abilities:

  • Applying self-directly expertise of IDE, and, if required, deepen this expertise
  • Providing (with aforementioned expertise) a surplus value for the company
  • Working systematically and being able to communicate appropriately and effectively
  • Possessing sufficient reflective abilities to function as an Industrial Designer

To ensure that an assignment offers the appropriate opportunities for a student to prove these competences, the contents of an assignment need to be approved beforehand by the coordinator of the assignment.

It is important that the subject of the assignment is useful for the initiating organisation. Therefore, it is common that the content is provided by your organisation. However, it is also possible for a student to propose a subject. In both cases, the university coordinator helps to define and structure the proposal where necessary. To be certain that the assignment provides the desired goals, the following requirements on the assignment’s contents are set:

  • The student must execute the assignment mainly individually. The assignment must provide the student the possibility to prove that they can develop solutions independently
  • The assignment should be broad enough and require integration of several IDE disciplines
  • The assignment should have an appropriate level of complexity
  • The assignment has to result in either a tangible design proposal or specific research conclusions. The design proposal might encompass a model, prototype, simulation or a product presentation. The research conclusions should be relevant for the IDE specialism.

It is desirable to introduce the student to your organisation (or company) as if he or she would be a new colleague. It is also desirable to provide a personal workplace. The university expects the supervisor to meet at least once in a week with the student to review the project’s progress and to give feedback. The student is required to deliver a draft report after 3 months. The supervisor from your organisation is asked to provide the student with feedback on this draft report before the student hands in his final thesis. The student finishes his assignment with an examination.

During the assignment, a university tutor will guide the student. This guidance focuses on the approach and progress. The tutor will also monitor if the assignment succeeds in providing the appropriate opportunities for a student to prove their competences. Furthermore, the tutor, and if necessary also other university professors, will be available to provide course related counsel and information. Preferably (and if possible), the university tutor visits your company at least once during the project.

At the end of the assignment, the supervisor from your organisation is asked to attend the student’s examination to help assessment of the results. The student will contact the different parties to arrange an examination date. The exam consists of a final presentation and an oral examination. The grade will reflect the quality of the report, the final project results, the quality of the presentation and the oral examination. A professor participates in the exam and represents the examining board.
