In this project-based class, interdisciplinary teams will combine design thinking and systems engineering techniques to define and solve complex systems and organization problems.

Throughout the entire design process (from fieldwork to brainstorming, prototyping and testing) students will benefit from systems engineering tools in capturing and organizing essential information.

Direct interaction with real sponsors, stakeholders and final users is an important part of this class.
