Course Objectives This course aims to enhance students' knowledge and understanding of the principle methods and tools of the industrial design process through the exploration of design problems. One or more design projects will be done where students will undertake design processes to consider the context of a product, and resolve its utility, its usability, its visual appearance, and its manufacturing, aspects.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to apply basic design methods and creativity techniques to given design problems.
  • Student will be able to identify, find and interpret information that is relevant to the given design problems.
  • Student will be able to develop skills in physical model making and CAD modelling and manual rendering techniques in the resolution of design problems.
  • Student will be able to experience design problems introducing to problems of the context of a product, and its utility, usability, visual appearance, and manufacturability.
  • Student will be able to use techniques and gain experience in sharing ideas and working in groups.
Course Description This course will consist of one or more intermediate level industrial design projects. Students will undertake design processes, to a moderate degree of technical detail, that focus on specific aspects of the design problem for consumer products. Students will produce convincing models and visual presentations of their design concepts.
