Product Design

We are entering an era where many new design-related careers are emerging that will require unique, interdisciplinary skills. This intensive, engaging summer course explores and prepares participants for these new opportunities, where a robust portfolio demonstrating creativity, sensitivity to materials, and a coherent vision is the key to a successful design career. Keeping this in mind, this course will explore how creativity is expressed in a wide range of related professions and how it interacts with necessary business fundamentals. Students will explore a range of techniques and tools including 3D modeling, data analysis, deep topical research and presentation. With an eye towards real-world conditions, they will be introduced to the iterative processes of design engineering and trained to interpret their product to a client audience. A variety of lectures, workshops, and projects will prepare students for a final project that integrates the many skills and approaches they will have mastered.
