This ebook, titled Design Education Today: Technical Contexts; Programs and Best Practices (PDF), provides extensive information on the primary technical design disciplines, education programs, international best practices, and modes of delivery that are aimed at preparing a trans-disciplinary design workforce for the future. The goal of this ebook is to prepare a workforce that can design in a variety of contexts. In addition to this, it offers a detailed analysis of the breadth of design education as well as the current state of the field.

This ebook showcases signature design education programs from all across the world and at all levels, in both traditional classroom settings and through the use of distance learning. In addition, it examines professional associations for design educators and designers, as well as the current rules for professional registration, and it accredits design programs.
