About the Design Mine

The Design Pool and Design Mine are the fruit of a collaboration between the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED), the Chartered Society of Designers (CSD) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), in an effort to address the fragmented nature of the design community and the diverse interests of their members.

The three organisations believe this venture will greatly assist contact between all segments of their combined membership. These new links will be particularly valuable for young, recently qualified designers and technologists who will be able to share knowledge and the benefits offered by the three organisations.
