This course expands the students’ process of innovative design development through a series of smaller focused projects. Students learn traditional and contemporary design methodologies that can be applied to the process of developing new products. Instruction also focuses on integration of traditional handwork (sketching, rendering, and model making) and digital tools into the development and refinement of the final products.
