It is important that future civil engineers and industrial designers can consider people's different conditions and abilities in their coming professional roles. They will have the opportunity to contribute to future products, services and environments becoming accessible to as many people as possible. Knowledge of, and the ability to, familiarize oneself with different people's life situations will be important qualities to be able to contribute to society's strive towards inclusive diversity.
