IDDE-201
3 Credits
This course will focus on experimentation and discovery through the exploration of creative problem solving techniques. Students will explore the dynamics between objects and the user’s senses, emotions, and expressed needs. Using drawing, sketch-modeling and basic shop skills, students will discover the wide choice of materials industrial designers use to further develop their projects. Concepts of recycling and reuse are introduced along with philosophical design approaches, and historical examples. Emphasis will be placed on the improvement of craft in the development of projects and on clarity and professionalism in practice.
IDDE-302
3 Credits
This course will highlight the application of design methods and processes through projects that focus on deepening the students’ problem-solving skills, studio skills (two- and three-dimensional sketching, drawing, CAD), shop skills (modelmaking) and presentation skills. Emphasis will be placed on collaborating with multidisciplinary partners outside the industrial design program, and/or, when circumstances allow, with external resources such as clients or project sponsors.
IDDE-407
3 Credits
This is the first course in a two-course sequence in which the industrial design senior capstone project is developed. The course will focus on establishing content, planning, scheduling, and research of a faculty approved project that explores the social elements of design either in a collaborative design process, or in context of the broader social impact of design decisions. Students will complete the early stages of capstone development including ideation, concept refinement and evaluation. Final design proposals will be implemented in Capstone II.
IDDE-408
3 Credits
This is the second course in a two-course sequence in which the industrial design capstone project is completed. Students will finalize their design solution, publicly disseminate their work, and create a written document that addresses how the theories and methods used in the project have an impact on the current and future state of design in society.
IDDE-599
1 - 6 Credits
Industrial Design Independent Study provides students the means to study in a specialized area with an individual faculty member. With the assistance of their faculty advisers, students will propose a course of study. Students must obtain permission of an instructor and complete the Independent Study Permission Form to enroll. A 3.0 or higher GPA required.
