AbstractThis article discusses two courses on product design offered within the United Kingdom at the University of Brighton and the University of Sussex run within engineering departments alongside traditional engineering courses. This paper outlines some of the intrinsic pedagogic practices that are employed by these two courses, why creativity is a central tenet within these courses, and why creativity is a key requirement in sustainable design. It supposes why these practices might, and should, offer a suitable role model for more traditional engineering courses.
