    Abstract

    Within the Bachelor's programme Industrial Design Engineering we created a 15EC elective research module "Scientific Challenges". One of the possible research subjects of this module is “Author Driven Design project”, which means exploring the Design of objects from your own intrinsic motivation, rather than from an external demand driven assignment. The rationale behind this subject is that demand driven and author driven design practices both have strengths and weaknesses and that the two approaches can benefit from each other. By letting the students, that are regularly trained as a demand driven designer, execute an author driven design project, we serve two purposes. The students learn more about themselves and about different design approaches, and we as researchers learn more about how the two approaches can influence and inform each other.
