Design is an important aspect in almost all engineering fields. IJDE proposes and fosters discussion on up to date research findings and achievements in design engineering and related areas, and identifies new technology requirements, needs and priorities in those areas. It offers the reader a wealth of valuable material on theories and practices which underpin successful research and development in design engineering.


 Topics covered include

  • Product, engineering and industrial design
  • Design in engineering subject areas
  • Design for sustainability and renewable energy
  • Web/internet technologies and wireless computing in design engineering
  • Design management
  • Integrated design and manufacturing, concurrent engineering
  • Mechanical transmission and machine elements
  • Tribology and lubrication in design engineering
  • Mechanics and mechatronics, heat transfer and fluids
  • Design optimisation and finite/boundary element methods in design engineering
  • Agile manufacturing
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Experimental and theoretical analyses in design engineering
  • Advanced computing in design engineering

ObjectivesThe objectives of IJDE are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions, industries and enterprises, professional organisations, policy makers, government agencies and persons concerned with the complex issues in design engineering and related subject areas. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in those areas. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the global economy.


IJDE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, engineers and policy makers, working in the field of design engineering and related subject areas, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work


IJDE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, conference reports, case studies, book reviews, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in design engineering and related areas will occasionally be published.
