An empirical study investigating creativity relevant factors that impact on knowledge application within the context of Product Design Education has been undertaken in the form of survey. The principal creativity relevant factor is identified as metacognition, which is related to creative thinking. Different kinds of knowledge applied in Product Design students’ final year design projects (FYDPs) have been assembled and arranged into three categories. Possible ways of categorising knowledge according to the influences of metacognition are proposed that may inform design education practices.
