Design Thinking: Human-Centred Solutions to Real World Challenges
The purpose of this course is to engage students in a multidisciplinary collaboration to tackle real world problems. Following a design thinking approach, students will work in multidisciplinary teams to solve a set of design challenges that are organized as a one-week, a three-week, and a six-week project. The final project will be in collaboration with an external project partner.
During the course, students will learn about different design thinking methods and tools. This will enable them to:
- Generate deep insights through the systematic observation and interaction of key stakeholders.
- Engage in collaborative ideation with a multidisciplinary (student) team.
- Rapidly prototype and iteratively test ideas and concepts by using various materials and techniques.
