SHARING EXPERIENCE IN DESIGN EDUCATION BASED ON RESEARCH AND INDUSTRIAL PRACTICE
DS 68-8: Proceedings of the 18th International Conference on Engineering Design (ICED 11), Impacting Society through Engineering Design, Vol. 8: Design Education, Lyngby/Copenhagen, Denmark, 15.-19.08.2011
We present and share our experience obtained through education in a degree-level course on system design engineering of technical products, in which we successfully integrate an engineering design research, education and industrial practice. We focus on and share the experience with the key instrument of this concept, which are the education design projects for industry solved by cross-disciplinary student teams. We have identified and present nine key factors that help our students and ourselves to achieve valuable and repeatably validated long-term results of these projects.
