Course description and aims

The aim of this class is to provide students an opportunity to exercise the design of user experience, software, and hardware that can solve the problem given on the basis of "Design Thinking" approach. The students are supposed to work as groups consisting of 4 or 5 members having different expertise. In solving the problem, the students are requested to learn the viewpoint of human-centered design using "Design Thinking". The way of ideation is typically unlike the viewpoint of technical-seeds oriented. The students are also supposed to learn the fundamental of the project management in order to lead the project of which members have different backgrounds.
