Undergraduate courses in design engineering address both the form and functional design of products. This apparently simple objective belies some of the real challenges faced in educating students on such courses. These challenges tend to relate to achieving a balance in the consideration of form and functional issues in a manner appropriate to the product context being considered. This paper will describe a study undertaken at the University of Strathclyde that attempted to develop a better understanding of student learning with respect to this issue.
