Abstract

The different professions within design and engineering, represent a continuum of competencies with
some, not always clearly defined, overlap. The paper looks at final year degree projects from three
different majors from the same university: Industrial Design, Product Development and Mechatronics
Engineering. The results indicate significant parallels between Industrial Design and Product
Development, both aiming at new products, while Mechatronics Engineering is more science based.
