This module equips students with the knowledge and skills required to design physical consumer products such as household appliances. Students learn how to produce hand drawings that visually communicate how a design will function and how to construct it. Then, students learn how to develop forms and shapes for products (form-giving) and produce 2D and 3D prototypes of their designs using industry-standard software. Students then learn how to use these resources to guide the production of ergonomic designs. Students also study materials, including mechanical properties and sourcing and costing considerations, so that they are able to select the most suitable materials and processes for their projects. At the end of the module, students will work on a project for extreme users that leverages an inclusive design process.
