The research activity in this field concerns all areas of design of engineered products and systems: design theory and methodology in all fields of engineering, such as industrial, mechanical, mechatronics, systems engineering and engineering management.

The researchers work on principles and methods of engineering design and discipline-oriented research where results are of interest or extendible to other engineering domains.
