When the development of design research is examined, the disciplines interact with each other. These interactions lead to concepts such as crossdiscipline, multidiscipline, interdiscipline and transdiscipline. Industrial design education has also been rapidly affected by these interdisciplinary working methods in recent years. While developing creative problem solving techniques in this study process, aim to increase the usability of future technologies in products and services. Design Labs, which is the development area of developing new technologies, is carrying out many innovations in design researches and practices. This research project has been investigated by examining the current state of affairs on design laboratories in international academic settings and the effects on design education. The main goal of the project is to identify the importance and priority of interdisciplinary studies through the design discipline, and to specify data on design education and design research of innovative and future technologies.
