Euiyoung Kim has recently joined the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at Technical University Delft (TU Delft) in the Netherlands as a new Assistant Professor in the Department of Product Innovation Management. Link to the profile. Euiyoung was previously a postdoctoral researcher in the BEST lab and a lecturer and a post-doc. design fellow at Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation at the University of California, Berkeley. He was the research director in the Berkeley Research for Autonomous Vehicle Opportunities (BRAVO), and a co-principal investigator on several research projects on the topic of future mobility, cybersecurity, and next digital. He received PhD degree in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley focusing on Design Theory & Methods and New Product Development, Summer 2016 under the supervision of Prof. Alice M. Agogino. Dissertation title: “Design Roadmapping: Integrating Design Research Into Strategic Planning For New Product Development”. He was granted MS degree in Engineering Design Innovation at Northwestern University in 2011. Prior to moving to the United States, he worked in a strategic marketing team, Samsung Electronics.

At TU Delft, he will be leading research in future mobility including public transportation, air travels, micro-mobility enabled by human-centered design and creative foresight approach. He will be teaching courses ‘designing an airport’, and ‘smart mobility’. Euiyoung’s mission at the TU Delft is to make the research in mobility as connected as possible across Product Innovation Management, Design Engineering, and Interaction design as well as Transportation Institute in Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Polity departments. He aims to create a long-term vision on the future mobility research by upholding dynamic stability under uncertain and fast-changing market environment. 

Euiyoung has received several research and teaching awards, including the ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) 2016 Best Paper Award, the ICED (International Conference on Engineering Design 2013 & 2015 Reviewers’ favorite Awards, the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award 2014, UC Berkeley. He is a Fellow of 2015 SIPFF (Summer Institute for Preparing Future Faculty) at UC Berkeley, an Autodesk Faculty Fellow, a member of ASME, IEEE, IDSA, and Design Society.
