Why this course?
This course aims to provide graduates not only with enhanced skills in creative product design but a deeper understanding of the cognitive, cultural and physical needs of users that inform new product design and development.
It will provide a thorough training in design theories and methods including product aesthetics and human-centered design, and the utilization of advanced design techniques in digital modeling and physical rapid prototyping of design solutions.
The course will appeal to graduates of courses in industrial/product design or innovation-related courses who wish to influence future thinking and practice design.
