Case studies based on contemporary design innovations and historic design icons are distributed throughout. Every chapter provides references for topic specific further reading, worked examples and student review exercises in the form of sample questions.

Theory of Knowledge and International Mindedness perspectives are integrated into every topic with research guides, examples and exercises provided to enhance student learning.

The authors have considerable experience in the fields of design education (secondary and tertiary), as well as heavy industry. Peter has over 30 years of teaching experience, many of these as Head of Design faculties in Australia, Asia, Europe and the United States. Roger has over 35 years in failure analysis, quality control and project management. The majority of the photomicrographs in this book come from Roger’s personal collection.
