A workshop on teardrop trailers
Richard Firth, Associate Professor & Programme Leader BDes Product Design at Edinburgh Napier University, ran a workshop in April 2018 with International Class students in the Industrial products program. For the 2018 workshop, Industrial products program students’ topic was to build "Teardrop" trailers. Richard Firth encouraged students to work quickly on full scale models and then to engage with the public.

Partnership with Edinburgh Napier University
L’École de design Nantes Atlantique has been working closely with Edinburgh Napier University for several years. Each year, some students from L’École de design spend a semester abroad at the beginning of the first year of the MDes program. The partnership the school has with Napier has also been the opportunity for Richard Firth to come over 3 times for the International Class workshop. This workshop is a great chance for students to work with other schools design methods.
