PDES 312 Product Service Systems

3 credits 90.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

This course uses a wide lens to examine the often interconnected relationship between products, services and systems. Through a partnership with a relevant startup, students learn how to integrate these items to create a cohesive experience. In addition, they apply their growing knowledge of product design to help the startup address a need it defines. Students will move fluidly between physical and digital methods of making, and may produce one or more elements of a product service system. Lectures and discussions dissect contemporary and historical models of delivering products and services cohesively as well as their impact on the object economy, both socially and economically.
