Design as an intelligent behaviour has been the subject for researches in ArtificialIntelligence, Cognitive Sciences, Computer Sciences for several decades. Theemergence of a new field in computational design or design computing has an impact ondesign education, especially at postgraduate level. The Design Technology ResearchCentre in the School of Design of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University wasestablished seven years ago with a programme for design research and postgraduatedesign education in this new field of computational design. Over the last seven years,the DTRC established strong collaborations with various design education institutions inHong Kong and mainland China for the integration of design and technology. In thispaper, the work of the DTRC is presented and evaluated in terms of its effectiveness inthe context of establishing a module for postgraduate design research and education inHong Kong and mainland China, when considering design at the centre of a newenvironment supported through an integrated application of intelligent computationalsupport systems
