Engineering design is a process of problem solving by using engineering principles or science which is conducted systematically. In design process, a careful consideration is required about the materials from which a product is to be made. As the number of available engineering materials by the 2000s is large, a design engineer should have a comprehensive knowledge not only in engineering science but also in material science. Therefore, the Department of Materials and Engineering Design, FKMP-KUiTTHO is proposing a master degree program in engineering design which its curriculum is aimed to provide the participants with knowledge about design and materials simultaneously. Integrated approach in design and material will be applied in the learning process through subject assignments and research projects in which the participants will be intensively involved. This paper will give description in detail about the integrated concept and examples of current researches and academic projects which have been conducted. The master program is also considered to accommodate non mechanical engineering graduates who intend to deepen their expertise in engineering design.
