Technology in Industrial Design? Question for ID community

I have a strange graduate design degree that encompasses interactivity, technology, programming, computers and electronics. I can design and prototype circuits, navigate new technology etc. but I an not an Electrical engineer or a Comp Sci. No I am definitely a designer. However I’m trying to find Industrial designers to work with because my work is more focused on physical interfaces rather than screen based ones. My question is are my skills something that industrial designers might find valuable?


The definition of what precisely is or does an industrial designer has always been on the fuzzy side and is also evolving - faster too than, say, engineering or architecture.

From your too-brief description of yourself you seem that rare specimen caught between technological know-how and a need to translate it to regular humans. Generally speaking this is a good starting point for a designer. The need for your specific skills and experience is actually on the rise.
