Course Objectives To analyze industrial design process To teach structured methods that can be used at different stages of design To discuss the relationship between industrial design and engineering
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Student will be able to list the important phases of industrial design
  • Student will be able to interpret the expectations from a product or system from the viewpoint of the customer and producer and guess the attributes that could be requested from simple products
  • Student will be able to evaluate the functions to be performed by a product or system and show their relationship with materials, energy, and information.
  • Student will be able to apply creativity tools suitable for design.
Course Description This course analyzes the relationship between industrial design and engineering design and shows the phases related to these processes. An important part of the course is dedicated to convey various steps of structured methods used in design. These methods can be applied at various stages of design for various products or systems and have a high added value.
