This course is an intensive introduction to innovation philosophies and practices in the broad realms of engineering and design. The majority of the course revolves around hands-on team-based challenges that expose students to multiple engineering domains (electronic, software, mechanical…) as well design domains (graphic, product, industrial, experience…). The course culminates in a final innovation and prototyping challenge, the outputs of which are presented in a public exhibition. The course touches on economic, cultural, ethical, and other factors that must inform the innovation process to maximize its positive social impact.
