At the end of the course, each student will:
- understand the given design briefs, conduct research relevant to the design problems/opportunities and make visual and oral presentations on the design outcomes;
- redefine the design briefs so as to reflect his/her design approach;
- employ a variety of generative and evaluative design tools/methods (e.g. persona development, scenario building, mind mapping, storyboarding, storytelling with mock-ups etc.);
- present progress in his/her design process through various media (e.g. paper-based sketches, mock-ups, CAD models) during studio critiques and formal presentations/juries;
- present final design proposals (including product concept, usage scenarios, materialization, technical details etc.) in a professional manner and through a variety of media (e.g. CAD models, presentation boards, physical appearance models, working prototypes, etc.);
- accumulate all relevant research, ideas and design development materials generated throughout their design process in the form of a design development portfolio.
