Malaysia has embarked on a mission to become a full industrialised country by the year 2020. In order to achieve the mission, it is crucial to encourage and bring forward more professional designers who are able to work closely with the government, the industry and other professional diciplines to make this vision a reality.
Admittedly, strong command of design and creative invention is a powerful prerequisite for later success not only in the pursuits of scientific knowledge but also in most professions. If we look closely there is design in everything we do. We need to design skills to work in manufacturing, research and development, and the list goes on. This fact alone underscores the strategic importance of an effective education in design and nothing is more effective than exploring it at young age.
