"Over its ten year history the EDC has earned an international reputation for its research through its publications, software tools, and presentations (many invited) at international conferences; through collaborations with industry; and through networking with other design research groups. Its newly acquired IMRC status now leads to the possibility of immediate but carefully controlled growth, building on a number of strategic objectives, namely:
Research, focusing on high-quality fundamental research to provide the theories and methods that will underpin engineering design in the future;
Technology Transfer and Exploitation, transferring the research results into industry through technology transfer and exploitation to help enhance the UK's industrial competitiveness; and
Education, contributing to design education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels to help create a pool of well-educated designers.
With a team of over 40 people with expertise in a number of different industry sectors: aerospace, health-care, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) as well as general product design, we are driven by a desire to develop tools and techniques that will have a real impact on design in the UK."
