Integrating Art and Science Education through Design – The ARTEM Project
2007 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
There is a general notion that design is a suitable way to bridge the gap between art and science. Universities and schools have tried to bridge this divide in various ways with sporadic degrees of success. This paper focuses on an innovative project that goes one step further. The University of Nancy (France) has instigated a project called ARTEM. This is an alliance between the ICN Business School, the School of Mining/Engineering and the National School of Art of the University. It combines the disciplines of art, science, technology and management. The objective is to offer students teaching which combines various forms of knowledge, intelligence and creativity. The three schools function interactively and offer several curriculum bridges.
ARTEM will reach full maturity in 2011. The purpose of this paper is to present this on-going project where design is used as a mechanism for integrating disciplines.
