Design Engineering Internship at
Accenture Industry X Industrial Design

The Opportunity

About Accenture Industry X ▪ Industrial Design
In the ever-evolving digital age, the essence of tangibility in the design process for physical products remains irreplaceable. At Accenture Industry X ▪ Industrial Design (previously called VanBerlo), we celebrate the fusion of the digital and physical, recognizing that both dimensions play pivotal roles in crafting exceptional products for the modern era. Touch, feel, and sensory engagement breathe life into innovation. Tactile experiences empower us to refine aesthetics, assess functionality, and foster collaboration, bridging the gap between design vision and user experience throughout a wide variety of industries.

Our multidisciplinary approach is human centric with sustainability embedded, to ensure that every aspect of the product is carefully considered - from its design and engineering to its sourcing, manufacturing, and servicing. Design can play a critical role in addressing the pressing sustainability and inclusivity challenges we face today, and the fusion of physical and digital design can be a powerful tool in this effort.
