In this course students will work in teams and continue to hone the design process by dissecting an existing product, analyze a market segment and redesign the product to fit the described market. Students integrate their drawing, model making and material knowledge to design for consumers. All students taking INDS 250C will be charged a […]
This course introduces students to methods, materials, and manufacturing processes that translate design processes into mass-produced goods. A major component of downstream design activity involves manufacturing issues – the techniques by which materials are selected, manipulated, and then assembled. Consideration is also given to the selection of these materials to meet manufacturing and design criteria. […]
Moving a great idea into a sustainable reality requires a fundamental understanding of business. Successful designers understand that business principles overlap, complement and enhance design principles. Through a variety of exercises students will learn how to approach a variety of real world scenarios, understand company expectations and anticipate employer concerns that will help them transition […]
The design process is introduced and practiced as students apply learned fundamental principles to multiple three-dimensional forms, structures, and products.
