This course is a project-based culmination of design and manufacturing studies applied to a formal product design challenge. Students will work in teams to conceptualize, plan, define, prototype, optimize, and manufacture their solution to a real-world design problem. Emphasis is placed on creativity, communication and documentation skills, time management and individual responsibility for project success. A final project portfolio will include both written and graphical documentation of the product design process.
