We present the program Sustainable Design Engineering, where Science and Technology Studies theories are a core element among design and engineering approaches. Our main claim is that existing product centred and short-term oriented solution tools and knowledges are inadequate for system design in a sustainable transition perspective. To achieve this goal, design theory and practices need to be further improved to be able to tackle controversies and engage in proposing how to navigate conflicting matters of concern and partial systemic clashes with a long-term scope.
