About the course
Advances in design are often intricately interwoven with advances in fundamental technologies, and the most iconic products excel in both areas. This two-day course provides a framework for thinking about the co-evolution of design and technology, with a focus on emerging trends in the Internet of Things.
Leading faculty from the College of Engineering will lecture on IoT topics from wearables to product to the city scale, explaining how this emerging technology is changing the product and service landscape from the body to the city, and why a human-centered design approach is essential in deploying new technologies successfully. Industry experts will complement faculty-led sessions with case studies illustrating the concepts, themes, and technologies featured in this course.
- Innovation at the intersection of design and technology
- Design thinking and human-centered design processes
- Emerging IoT technologies related to wearables, consumer products, and infrastructure
- Hands-on rapid interaction prototyping workshop
- Understanding IoT Business models
Students will learn how to effectively pair human-centered design with technology innovation, why design is important in large and small companies, in consumer-facing and B2B industries and what the key opportunities and challenges are in the Internet of Things field.
