About the Book
Design is an integral part of engineering. Therefore, it is important for students to be prepared well for a career in engineering design. However, this objective is difficult to achieve in practice. How should we impart engineering design skills to university students? This is especially challenging as new engineering design theories and methods are constantly proposed by practitioners and academia from around the globe. There is hence a need to consolidate emerging ideas in design research in order to enhance the process of training engineering students.

ICADRE is organised to bring together academics that have specific interest in the study, promotion, and development of design education in a tertiary education setting. The main objectives of the conference are to advance research in design and to discuss how the output of design research can be applied to design education. We are glad that we have the opportunity to host the conference at the National University of Singapore, and in conjunction with the Annual Meeting of the Association for Engineering Education in Southeast Asia, East Asia and the Pacific (AEESEAP). AEESEAP was founded in 1970 by UNESCO and the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO) to improve the education of engineers and technologists in its member countries. Current AEESEAP member countries are Australia, Brunei Darussalam, PR of China, Fiji, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Lao PDR, Malaysia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.

It is intended that the the proceedings will be a valuable source of reference for research and development in the rapid growing area of design.

Readership: Researchers, engineers and practitioners in the field of Design Research and Education.
