The paper introduces theory and methodology developed on the basis of a “map” of Engineering Design Science, which proved to be a powerfull tool for efficient and effective cooperation for the two “competing” professions like engineering and industrial designers. This approach has been validated during education design projects carried out for and evaluated by industrial partners. The projects have been carried out at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen over the last few years. Students worked in “competing” teams consisting of engineering and industrial design students. The following topics were undertaken last year: Dentist’s working place, Assembly line for gluing hinges on mirror doors, and Parking facilities for “Coupe Vehicles”.

Keywords: engineering design, industrial design, product development, co-operation, design process, methodology
