What is design? Design is a plan of a system, its implementation and utilization for attaining a goal. It is to change undesired situation into desired situation means to find solution for undesired/uncomfortable situation.
Designs can be for
(1) Technical systems (power plant)
(2) Educational systems (Montessori Method)
(3) Aesthetic systems (logo designs, advertisements)
(4) Legal systems
(5) Social, religious or cultural systems
(6) Theories, Models, etc.
Design thinking gives students a taste of the rich internal-remunerations associated with knowledge-creation and in curiosity and problem-driven contexts. Design need to satisfy technical functions, ergonomics functions, aesthetic functions, cost function and environment functions.
Essential features of Design:
Design solution of a problem starts with planned constructions for achieving goal/s. Designing means evolving goal oriented processes. At the beginning of the design process only goals are known while at the end, both the goals and plans are known and that to with more clarity. Goal and plans evolve together and they influencing each other. In designing process some goals are more important than others and similarly some plans are better than others. Designing does not guarantee that the design will work.

Design thinking process:
(1) Find goals or need
(2) Evaluate goals or need
(3) Generate proposals to satisfy goals
(4) Evaluate proposals
(5) Improve goals and proposals.

Teaching methodology:
The design engineering should be with fun and should create excitement. It should be integrated theme across the various courses. It should promote the team work. Design is thinking and doing. The complete design process should be included in design engineering 1, 2 and 3. The prototype design must consider technical, aesthetic, ergonomics, cost and
