Design Thinking and Electronic Prototyping
Form of learning:
After completing the course, the students are able to identify key differences and similarities between
engineering and design work. They can also explain the key phases of design process with appropriate working
methods and tools.
After completing the course, the students will have an experience of completing a complete concept design
project in a team. They have experience of conducting context studies, interpreting context study materials,
generating concept alternatives, specifying a design concept, conducting user tests with a prototype, and
presenting a design concept. They have also experience of writing reflective learning diary as well as
participating in design critique.
After completing the course, the students are able to conduct a basic concept design project for a simple
electronic product in a team. They are able to present a design concept with contextually grounded arguments
The course covers design thinking in the context of basic electronic prototyping. The course activities include project work, lectures, lab exercises, and learning diary keeping.
