Abstract

This paper fits into the stream of design curriculum development and explores a number of the questions related to shaping the future of design education and designers. The question this research seeks to address is whether sustainability should or can be an integral part of engineering/product design programmes or whether it should/or can be developed as a separate design discipline? The research also briefly addresses the difference between, eco-design and sustainable design.
