Axiomatic design theory (AD) was originally developed to form a scientific basis for mechanical design. This paper takes an in-depth look at axiomatic design theory as a scientific basis for the design of educational courses and curricula. The implications of the first and second axioms for education are discussed and issues associated with coupling, physical integration, repetition, redundancy, complexity, robustness, and flexibility are addressed.
