Course Description

This engineering course is an intensive introduction to innovation philosophies and practices around the broad realms of the iterative design process (discover, ideate, make, expose). The majority of the course revolves around hands-on team-based challenges that expose students to multiple engineering domains (electronic, software, mechanical…) as well design domains (design thinking, visual-design, rapid prototyping, product-design, industrial-design). The course culminates in a final innovation and prototyping challenge, the outputs of which are presented in a public exhibition. The course touches on cultural, ethical, and economic factors that must inform the innovation process to maximize its positive social impact.
