Product Design Thesis Project :
This award recognises the best Product that combines art, science, and technology. A product that defines efficient and effective generation and development of ideas through a process that leads to create tangible inventions.
Course consists of a semester-long project chosen by the student under advisement of a faculty member. If approved by a faculty member, this can be a continuation of 22-3740 Product Design Thesis I. Students select an area of interest in order to broaden material and process awareness. Completion of project requires a complex user interface and extensive research into the development of a working virtual prototype. Students spend the first third of the semester doing research and are responsible for the development, prototyping, and refinement required to create a successful product. Requirements also include market research, cost analysis, prototyping, field-testing, and refinement. Student produces a complete booklet documenting the full process and the completed product in its entirety.
Reminds me of my product design thesis, same premise.
Other teaching includes leading Cliff Nass' inspired Communication class research projects, Product Design Thesis and Design Garage, and the REVS/Cars class, Tales to Design Cars By.
