INDUSTRIAL DESIGN ENGINEERING
ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
The design of products and systems which starts with the concept and ends with the completion of the final product or system is known as industrial design. In between, there also takes place the mediation of the geometric design, the selection of materials, the organization of the production, the digital guidance of machine tools, the study of the technical resistance. The process is completed with the introduction of the brand identity of the product.
Integrated planning, on the other hand, is the name of the environmentally sensitive design, the design of products and services which touches the sensitive areas of our society, such as recycling, but also education and awareness raising of people of different ages in matters of social interest.
The Center of Product and Packaging Design belongs to the CPPD of Western Macedonia (www.cppd.eu) as well as the CAD/CAM/CAE laboratory (www.c3.teiwm.gr) of the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Design Engineering, which has is the outcome of the merging of two departments, that of Mechanical Engineering and the one of Industrial Design Engineering at TEI of Western Macedonia, undertake a series of actions to combine the desired educational objectives with the research interests / achievements but also with entrepreneurship.
As a Center of Product and Packaging Design (www.cppd.eu) we collaborated with the region of Western Macedonia and designed the local quality agreement and services of Western Macedonia
CAD/CAM/CAE LABORATORY & CENTER OF PRODUCT AND PACKAGING DESIGN ACTIONS (www.cppd.eu)
An industrial designer must contribute to create mass production or products for personalized use, which must be functional, ergonomic and of high aesthetic.
The CAD / CAM / CAE laboratory team and the Centre of Product and Packaging Design try to organize their methodology so that any undertaken action starts smoothly, is developed efficiently and is completed with a specific deliverable product or service as an outcome.
In this context, actions have been taken by the group of the TEI of Western Macedonia aiming at promoting products and services through cooperation with a number of businesses and other organisations.
Furthermore, a range of products related to fashion and clothing has been developed, while at the same time the team works on the development of graphics applications, with emphasis on industrial design.
