This interactive course – open to all students – focuses on the process of design, using methods of design-thinking and co-creation: user-centered mindsets and action-oriented toolkits to help reframe challenges and innovate collaboratively. No design experience is required. We select our focus from among the Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st century, including enhancing virtual reality, advancing personalized learning, and making solar energy economical. Working in interdisciplinary groups, you develop ideas in co-creation with stakeholders, professionals, and end users, utilizing tools and techniques to better understand and synthesize insights; generate, visualize, and prototype ideas; and iterate collaborative designs.
