Department of industrial design

 

The workshop ‘Experience Design Above the XYZ’ to be held by the Department of Industrial Design of Shih-Chien University (SCID) at the 2011 YDW (2011 Young Designers Workshop) aims at stimulating the interactions between design and living culture. Young designers around the world with different cultures and geographic characteristics are cordially invited to participate in this workshop. The workshop activities are tightly linked to and enriched by the diversity of cultural experiences and the different thinking styles in design. From globalization and localization perspectives, participants will experience a brand new image of Taiwan’s local daily life in the activities of the workshop. Through pursuits such as eating local delicacies, observing clothing fashions and living styles and experiencing transportation and leisure activities, participants will experience cross-culture impacts and thereby be inspired to have a new interpretation on daily living and design thinking.

 

Three types of mobility will be applied in the activities of the workshop “Experience Design Above the XYZ” over four days. Each type of mobility is designed to introduce Taiwan to a group of participants with distinct perspectives on moving styles and demographic limits, with the intention of producing different culture interpretation and design concerns. Every participant should explore his/her own Taiwan experience in person in order to propose and formulate a series of design issues. The fun dialog between cross-culture experiences and design thinking offers an enjoyable practice in learning the methodology of experiencing design.

 

Consultants from Taiwan and international companies will be invited to offer a series of lectures and to lead the workshop activities. The workshop participants will thus gain different viewpoints on design from the industrial experts and academic researchers.

 

Ultimately, the participants from the workshop are expected to learn how to well balance design considerations from different cultural viewpoints, and hence be able to form a bridge between creative ideas and design practice.

About Us

The Department of Industrial Design of Shih-Chien University (SCID), founded in 1992, was nominated as one of the “World's Best Design Schools” by Business Week in 2009. The primary goals of the SCID Program are Professionalism, Internationalization and Industrialization. The integration between theories and practices and interdisciplinary studies are especially emp0hasized in the master program, launched in 1998. Business Week reviewed the curriculum of the SCID master program and explicitly valued it “a studio-based curriculum that integrates humanities, social sciences, technology, and engineering.” Business Week attributed SCID’s nomination to the fact that “Students assess case studies of design management in action and learn about leadership and how to market design within business through workshops and seminars.”

 

SCID has always encouraged its students to proactively participate in various national and international design competitions and exhibitions. It has won over 825 design awards since1992, including 189 international design awards from iF design Award, Reddot Design Award, IDEA Design Award, Saloe International Del Mobile, Muji Award International Design Competition, etc. In order to enrich students’ practical experiences, SCID regularly holds design workshops/projects and practical training in close collaboration with enterprises like Acer, BenQ, Umax, Sampo, Sanyang, Alcatel, Philips, Eupa, Nova Design, GE/FITCH, Era Design, BOD Design, etc.
