Research in Design-Led Innovation


The design of new products and services is the central activity of engineering. Research in this area advances the design of engineered products and services and new tools and methods for designing. The modes of research include: empirical studies of engineering design methods; devising new designs to uncover new design tools, methods, and knowledge applicable to a broad range of engineered products and services; and improving an existing engineered product as a means for generating new knowledge about how an engineered product should be designed.
