Scholars believed that only by focusing on cultivating students with multi-knowledge integration learning and problem-solving ability to be able to face changing environment. To become a cross-disciplinary talents with the ability to solve today's complex problems, the cross-field talents cultivated in the school must not only specialize in design professional knowledge, but also learn a variety of knowledge and skills. Therefore, curriculum content planning in design education is very important for cultivating interdisciplinary talents.
This study takes the Department of Industrial Design as the object and conducts the construction and evaluation of cross-field ability courses. By using the Interpretation Structural Model (ISM) to discuss the correlation between courses, find out the cross-field courses suitable for the Department of Industrial Design.
The results show that course design should focus on developing operational and institutional interdisciplinary capabilities and usability. Curriculum design should match the problem base learning method to adjust the proportion and sequence of course credits. The arrangement of the courses should first allow students to understand the problems to be solved, and then assist them to build integrated concepts, so that students not only can have vertical and in-depth professional knowledge, but also think in horizontal, diverse and comprehensive ways. By increasing the diversity of design methods and knowledge as well as the opportunities to practice (such as internship) into course design, let students capable to understand the skills of adopting their knowledge and further build their interdisciplinary ability.
