Abstract

Holistic approach for industrial innovation is obtained in integrated design teams by mixing up backgrounds and skills into multidiscipline teams. However, is mixing enough? To go further than a simple addition of skills and create a synergy, the key ingredient is to favour communication and understanding between individuals in the team. Our contribution as a graduate school of engineering is to impulse the establishment of common languages and favour constructive interactions between future engineers and future designers. A specific educational program has been tailored for French engineering students to favour mind opening through variety of lectures and hand-on activities. The focus point is a multidiscipline international workshop in design and engineering, gathering students from both areas. The workshop process has been studied and it was demonstrated that significant knowledge transfer and efficient complementarities of skills and methods were occurring and led to a global and user-centred response to the Design brief.
