D. Ramzy.

This course is a unique cross-college collaborative studio bringing together students to work on competitions requiring both a design and business case. Students will develop projects (and processes) that benefit from the intersection of their respective disciplines, enabling all participants to generate creative, innovative and feasible ideas, as well as communicate their vision persuasively. Ideal for those interested in entrepreneurship, strategy, business design and social innovation, it offers an opportunity to work in the intense studio environment, characterized by the iterative, human-centered design process, fast failure and peer learning. Each student will submit to at least 3 design competitions of various scale, requirements and origin, resulting in portfolio-ready projects that past students have gone on to build after graduation.

Outcome 1: Students will be able to apply research and analysis tools to the design process and learn to identify design opportunities.

Outcome 2: Students will be able to use the iterative process for problem solving: generating, testing, and refining ideas, products, business models, etc.

Outcome 3: Students will be able to practice working collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams.

Outcome 4: Students will be able to model innovative concepts at the intersection of design and business.

Outcome 5: Students will be able to apply research and analysis tools to the design process and learn to identify design opportunities.
