Design Educations for Students at Mechanical EngineeringHaeseong J. Jee (Hong-Ik University)Design education for engineering has been traced as a consistent,progressive, and academic discipline, from primary to higher educationby Geoffrey Harrison in 2011. It has been also a keen issue to establisha robust curriculum of design educations for undergraduate engineeringstudents, especially in mechanical engineering, in Hong-Ik University.The paper introduces an engineering educational environment based onmultidisciplinary projects including industrial design project, industry-jointproduct development project, and interdisciplinary collaboration projectswith other global institutes worldwide. The main objective is toaccelerate students design and manufacturing skills, while giving them the experience of globalcommunication for large scale collaboration as well as diverse industry-academiacommunications. This objective demands the intimate partnership between industrial design andengineering, the mutual interests between industry and academia, and constantcommunications among all global institutions from different disciplines worldwide as well.
