IDES 710 Advanced Prototyping Studio

College of Art, Media & Design CAMD Cross-College

3 credits 90.0 hours
600 level graduate course

The advanced multidisciplinary studio where human-centered design process, development, and production are emphasized through the integration of critical issues that inform product design and in collaboration with one of the program’s strategic industry partners. As an advanced studio, this course builds upon concepts and techniques introduced in GRID 610 Prototyping Studio and other 1st year graduate level courses. Issues discussed and refined through making are: human experience and lifestyles; cultural and political issues; ergonomics; poetics; semantics; interactivity; imagery and form. The design process will consider above issues in the formulation of a design program; conceptual abstract studies; physical and material investigations; simulated and physical representation; and the application of manufacturing processes. Mechanical and digital fabrication and prototyping tools are used to create physical models and outputs in a range of fidelities and formats. In this studio students will have the opportunity to further advance and refine their design capabilities while acting in a leadership role on the project teams.
