My main research interest is exploring the application of film and video in a design process.

Academic Background

After a M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (University of Twente, 1989), Gert Pasman obtained a Ph.D. in Industrial Design from Delft University of Technology in 2003. He gradually moved from an interest in design methodology and design processes into the domain of tools and techniques for interaction designers and educators. 

Education

  • 2003       
    Ph.D. Industrial Design
    Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands.
     
    Ph.D. thesis:
    Designing with precedents
    What role do existing products play in the generation and development of new product forms? How can this role be influenced by means of new design techniques? And how can these techniques be supported by means of a design support tool? In this thesis these three questions are addressed using various methods and means, such as literature reviews, contextual interviews and experimental studies as well as user interface design and software prototyping.

  • 1989
    M.Sc. Mechanical Engineering
    Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Twente University of Technology, Enschede, The Netherlands.
     
    Master’s thesis:
    Implementing techniques for creative thinking in a mechanical engineering process
    Several techniques for creative thinking were classified and linked to different phases in the mechanical engineering process. To support one of these techniques a software prototype was developed in Apple HyperCard.
