    The Venue

    Faculty Industrial Design Engineering

    Landbergstraat 15, 2628 CE Delft

    Matching the evolution of people with the revolution of technology. This is the focus of the students, researchers and lecturers who work at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. Delft designers bridge the gap between technological developments and the needs of people, organizations and society. Because of this, we think the faculty will be a suitable and inspirational place for the HEPS to take place.
