Professor Chris McMahon from Department of Mechanical Engineering and Professor Bill Ion, University of Strathclyde give closing presentation. 

The Engineering and Production Design Education Conference as in previous years, was a truly international affair, with 31 countries being represented by 166 attendees. A total of 139 papers were presented and provided both a varied and extremely interesting programme over the full two days. The 15th Engineering and Production Design Education Conference had as its theme ‘Design Education – Growing Our Future’.

The conference was brought to a close on the second day with a presentation to Professors Chris McMahon and Bill Ion,  both of the Design Education Special Interest Group of the Design Society. They were thanked for their many years of involvement and invaluable leadership, which has provided a significant contribution to the successful development of the conference and its continued growth. They have developed this event from the meeting of a relatively small number of academics into the truly international and multidisciplinary conference that it is today, which covers a broad range of subjects in engineering and product design education. Their legacy will be preserved through the continuing exploration of issues related to design education at future Engineering and Production Design Education Conferences. The conference proceedings were dedicated to them; their contribution in future years will be sadly missed, although we hope their presence is not. Members of the organising committee wished them both every happiness in their respective futures.
