Teaching Design by Practice

  • C. Rodwell Loughborough University


The Engineering Design Centre concentrates on teaching Design by way of realistic practice with copious tutorial guidance. At undergraduate level this must be achieved using artificial problems set up for educational purposes only, but at postgraduate level nothing less than wholly commercial design projects are considered acceptable. All the activities of the Centre were briefly reviewed in an earlier issue of Studies in Design Education & Craft (Vol. 6 No.2). This article examines the one-year postgraduate course in more detail, with special reference to the project system.
