When asked what Design is all about, people will often use terms like “art”, “styling” and “intuition”. One of the words that is unlikely to be mentioned is “science”. Nevertheless, last year “Industrial Design” celebrated its 40th anniversary as academic discipline and this year our department of Industrial Design celebrates its 10th anniversary as academic department at the Eindhoven University of Technology.
As part of our lustrum celebrations the department of Industrial Design organises an academic debate on “Super TU/esday“, October 25th. The theme of the debate is: “Design is Science”
During this debate two eminent researchers will shed their light on this question. The debaters will be:
Prof.dr. Bill Buxton, Chief designer at Microsoft, dr. honoris causa and distinguished visting professor of our university;
Prof.dr. E.W. Meijer, Spinoza Laureate and professor of Chemical Engineering at our university.
