New Release: Computational Design Methods and Technologies

Hershey, PA – February 24, 2012 – The emergence and adoption of
computational technologies has significantly changed design and design
education beyond the replacement of drawing boards with computers or
pens and paper with computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided
manufacturing (CAM), and computer-aided engineering (CAE) applications.

Edited by Ning Gu, University of Newcastle, Australia and Xiangyu Wang,
Curtin University, Australia, IGI Global’s newest release,
Computational Design Methods and Technologies: Applications in CAD, CAM
and CAE Education explores state-of-the-art developments in
computational design methods and their impact on contemporary design
education. Readers will find case studies, empirical research findings,
pedagogical theories, and reflections. Researchers, educators, designers
and developers will better understand how applying pedagogical research
and reflection has influenced and will continue to transform the field
in the future.
