Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 7674

Credits: 3

In this course, students will leverage the Human-Centered Design (HCD) process to develop strategic design solutions to complex problems, while considering real-life constraints such as technical feasibility, business viability, sustainability, and ethics. Students will drive a project from conception to completion to explore how the design process is informed by technical, engineering, and business techniques while maintaining a design and user-driven approach to problem-solving. Guest lecturers will join the class to provide examples on how they leverage and augment the Human-Centered Design process in their work to meet user needs while balancing external requirements from their cross-disciplinary peers and their larger organization. Students are not required to have any previous design or technical experience. This course was previously offered as "Design Meets Engineering" and is not repeatable for credit.
