Class flow

Firstly, students learn the basic knowledge of Product design and Product development through case study and class discussion.
Secondly, students conduct field observation to find the products (or parts) that embodied “clever design”, and appreciate their values.
Thirdly, students design original products by group works.
Fourthly, students make actual prototype of the product using a 3D printer.
At the end of the course, student groups give presentations and receive comments.
