GE 5020: Engineering Product Design Methodology
Lecture - 4 credits
- Explores the iterative product development process, with a focus on user-centered design techniques.
- Employs generative and evaluative user research methods to set product requirements and end-user technical specifications and inform the product development decision-making process.
- Expects students to develop a simple product, device, or tool in a team-based workshop environment, through a project spanning opportunity recognition, concept generation, prototyping and testing, concept selection, and engineering design, all informed by the needs of the intended user population.
- Includes discussions of industrial design, sketching, design thinking, prototyping and manufacturing processes, and product development consulting.
