Product Design Innovation Lab: Level 1
Design an original project—from the initial concept to the final rendering—with the processes and tools used by professionals. This course explores it all: research and analysis, concept generation, design development, engineering principles, material fundamentals, mechanical layout, ergonomic principles, 2D design sketching and rendering, 3D model making, and presentation techniques. Students are guided through the design process through weekly assignments and project reviews, with emphasis on developing innovative and compelling design solutions. Instruction also helps develop skills in thinking and communication, design language and aesthetics, and sustainable design.
