Professor Denis A. Coelho’s main teaching contribution has been stimulating the formation and initial operation of graduate courses in Industrial Design and MA in Industrial Design Engineering at UBI. He develops scientific activity within product design methodologies and has also conducted research in the field of ergonomic design and human requirements on technology, developed extensively in his doctoral work. Professor Coelho collaborates with several international research institutions in the areas of product design and ergonomics. The key area of his scientific activity is focused on the Human Interface located between technology and humans, which is characterized by an interdisciplinary nature, with technical and technological bias favouring an ergonomic perspective. His scientific activity also extends to product design methodologies, normalization applied to industrial management systems and production strategy in international networks.

A fast paced changing world requires dynamic methods and robust theories to enable designers to deal with the new product development landscape successfully and make a difference in an increasingly interconnected world. Designers continue stretching the boundaries of their discipline, and trail new paths in interdisciplinary domains, constantly moving the frontiers of their practice farther. This book, the successor to "Industrial Design - New Frontiers" (2011), develops the concepts present in the previous book further, as well as reaching new areas of theory and practice in industrial design. "Advances in Industrial Design Engineering" assists readers in leaping forward in their own practice and in preparing new design research that is relevant and aligned with the current challenges of this fascinating field.
