Integrated Prototypes/Products

Spring 2023

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 13454

Credits: 3

In this course, students are introduced to the basic tools and practices used in prototyping for product design with a special focus on alternative outputs, which may include a combination of physical products, accessory design, and fine art applications. Students will be introduced to the work of designers who occupy spaces at the intersection of product design, art, jewelry design and the constructed environment. While exploring basic tools, materials and practices associated with prototyping, students will begin by sketching their initial ideas in analog and CAD-based forms. The sketches will be developed into 3D prototypes by incorporating a variety of processes which may include 3D printing, metal working, ceramic and woodworking techniques. Students will be asked to experiment across a range of materials and methods for building prototypes. Students will create a final prototype for a designed product that incorporates the key components and methods of technical design and structural form.
