IDES 604 Design Methods I

College of Art, Media & Design CAMD Cross-College

3 credits 90.0 hours
600 level graduate course

As a complement to the studio course (GRID 603), this course helps to develop the skills and methods required to realize successful design projects. Put into practice, these “tools” enable and support a design process that is increasingly shared with other disciplines, facilitates collective learning, and produces actionable strategies for change. Special emphasis is placed on participant field research, system mapping, the development of design-orientated scenarios and the ability to communicate design thinking and concepts in a clear and compelling way. Content of the coursework comes directly from the studio projects.

Corequisite Course(s): IDES*603

Open to Masters of Industrial Design majors only.
