ID 490: Industrial Design International Studio

This studio will focus on the design and development of artifacts for public spaces, primarily community play and recreation areas. General Description: Individual and team-oriented design experiences that expand upon and combine intellectual and manual skills required for the practice of industrial design. Emphasis on identifying and solving design problems through manipulation of design theory, application of human factors, product safety awareness, universal design principles, ecological/environmental concerns, appropriate combination of materials and manufacturing techniques, and presentation of concepts. Extensive integration of computer technology, including 3-D digital modeling, animation, and physics simulation will be a vital part of the progression of this course (students are strongly advised to co-enroll in ID 415).
