Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The Chinese economy has been growing rapidly, and well trained engineers are increasingly in demand for product development. Through an Asia-Link project, a short training course, Advanced Product Development, was delivered for the training of teaching staff from China. The course covered advanced design methods, skills and management, concurrent engineering, and project exercises. A post-course survey showed that the course contents were subsequently applied within teaching and research in China.
