Engineering Design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceedings/Edited volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


When consulting the design research literature for a characterization of engineering design, two initial issues emerge. The first is that there is in design research a broad and a specific conception of design. The second is that design researchers describe existing practices of engineering design but also develop new practices and prescribe them as (good) engineering design. Both issues have an impact on the question of what engineering design is.
