Using long distance communication tools are considered a potential fast and efficient alternative when knowledge and resources are not available in one place. This paper is written by, and concerns the experiences of students from TU Delft who participated in a product design project in an international virtual setting. This was realised trough collaboration with other students from different European universities using only long distance communication tools. At the end of the term, the interdisciplinary student teams personally met each other in a workshop where they assembled and presented their products. This paper aims to focus on the students practical experiences in intercultural and interdisciplinary virtual enterprises.
