Abstract

Design students often do not have the chance to gain the first project experiences at university. They learn about design methods, project management and many other engineering subjects. However, they rarely get the chance to bring all the knowledge in a first design project together. In order to support this linking process, the department product development and machine elements at Darmstadt University of Technology conduct an International Design Contest. During this contest students get the chance to work within teams at a complete design task from the first idea to the real product. The authors organized the IDC at Darmstadt University of Technology in 2003 and participated as tutors at the international contest in Nagoya (Japan).
