Analysis of the impact of interaction and experience on quality components such as “usability”, “producibility”,
“reliability”, “sustainability” and “aesthetics” is presented using the case of engineering
design, a discipline that traditionally has an image of being a strictly calculated, rigid framework. It has
been widely recognised that engineering design encompasses two ways of thinkingdcreative and critical.
A central argument that the synergy of creativity and criticality is significantly enhanced by connecting
true interdisciplinary augmentation with the fine arts is discussed along with reflecting on the
importance of such an approach in higher education.
