The 23rd International Conference on Engineering and Product Design Education will be hosted online by VIA Design, VIA University in Herning, Denmark – 9th & 10th September 2021.

The conference is organised in partnership with the Design Education Special Interest Group (DESIG) of the Design Society and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED).

The E&PDE conference will bring together representatives from education and industry who have an interest in sharing new perspectives on design education. The conference will provide a forum for educators, practitioners and students from product development, engineering and industrial design, together with industry to discuss current educational issues and the nature of design education now and in the future.

This year we will be continuing our Visual Papers track inviting papers with high visual content and less text. Information on this exciting new format can be found here.
