Should Industrial Designers Be Required To “Think Like” Mechanical Engineers & Vice Versa?

Can industrial designers become mechanical engineers? Can mechanical engineers become industrial designers?

It’s no secret that industrial designers and mechanical engineers have their specific fields of expertise. But what happens when those fields of expertise collide and squeeze onto a thin line between industrial design and mechanical engineering?

We believe it’s beneficial for all disciplines to be multidisciplinary: it’s really important for the design team here at Hatch Duo to have a basic understanding of mechanical engineering and vice versa.

Our roles may differ, but our core skills are similar. We’re trying to solve the same problem, just from different points of view.
