IDES 332 Design Semantics Seminar

3 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

This seminar addresses design as a languaging process of social interaction. Semantic principles and design vocabulary are introduced through lectures, weekly readings, discussions, and exercises. Students work on individual as well as team-based projects to increase their competence in translating these ideas, concepts, and principles into design practices, applying replicable design methods towards proposing particular products whose meanings matter and whose use is dominated by facets of human understanding.

Prerequisites IDES*202, IDES*222, and IDES*231

Open to Industrial Design majors only.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
