15th International Conference on Engineering & Product Design Education

The 15th International Conference on Engineering and Product Design Education will bring together representatives from education, design practice, industry and government agencies that have an interest in developing new approaches and directions in design education.

The conference will take place in Dublin on the 5 & 6 of September 2013.   The event will be organised by the School of Manufacturing & Design Engineering, Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), in participation with the Design Education Special Interest Group (DESIG) of the Design Society and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED). The conference will provide a forum for participants to discuss current educational issues and to identify new approaches, address new challenges and new directions for design education. This is reflected in this year’s conference theme, ‘Growing our Future’. The conference's aim is to reflect the increasing emphasis on design education as a driver for economic growth and in particular the importance of design in addressing such issues as sustainability, creativity and innovation. We encourage conference submissions that have varied interpretations of the phrase ‘Growing our Future’ in line with the stated conference topics.
