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.
Hosting the 21st E&PDE conference at the University of Strathclyde in 2019 will mark a significant milestone and anniversary in the conference’s history by returning to where it was conceived twenty years prior. It will give the community an opportunity to reflect on the advances that have been made in Engineering and Product Design Education and to project forward to what the next twenty years will offer.
This year we will be introducing a new Visual Papers track inviting papers with high visual content and less text. Information on this exciting new format can be found here.
