Teaching NPD at Delft University of Technology

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademicpeer-review


Since 1964 New Product Development (NPD) has been an official subject of teaching at the Delft University of Technology (DUT) in the Netherlands. This article will report on the development of this programme over the last fourty years. It will reveal the problems we have encountered, the solutions which worked and which did not worked and it will, hopefully, give others some insights into building succesful NPD-curricula. Besides a historic overview we will describe the present program, compare it to other programs and go into details about two typical NPD-classes.
