Product Design 101 introduces the key-fundamental hands-on approaches towards creative and systematic product specification and design with fully-finished prototypes. Creative design-challenges will parallel fundamental principles of the design process, with case-studies of successful commercial Product designs and analysis of best-practice. Individual and also team-based open-ended product design and prototyping projects which explore real-life scenarios - will be the focus of the 2nd Semester within each of the 3 School of Product Design Majors. Students will will create hands-on prototypes related to their Degree Major, using techniques such as hand-tool and machine operations (Industrial Product Design), software and game engines (Immersive Applied Game Design), or mixing, blending and grinding operations (Chemical Formulation Design).
