FEATUREDEST 205Introduction to Technological Design: Innovation and Design Thinking
Using a design thinking approach to solve real world problems with technology, broadly defined. Design is treated as a universal human activity comprised of learnable principles, processes and skills. Students will identify a need (through empathy), define a problem, and work in a team on a technological solution, using prototyping and testing to refine their design. Over the semester, students will create and work on a collaborative website for their project. They will also learn two online technologies (one for 3D modeling, the other for app development) which they may use to prototype their design.
This course will introduce the important principles and theories of marketing, especially for new product design and development, for technical and eCommerce industries. The preparation and evaluation of a marketing plan will also be covered.
