Industrial Design Intelligence (A Cognitive Approach to Engineering): Course Description

'Industrial Design Intelligence: A Cognitive Approach to Engineering' explores objective evaluation approaches and prototyping techniques as an aspect of the process of design. Products with electronic and mechanic aspects were evaluated and the results were used to create product prototypes that function. Skills needed include creative, aesthetic and engineering. Course helped students develop prototyping skills and make a product prototype. 'Industrial Design Intelligence: A Cognitive Approach to Engineering' is a free OpenCourseWare, originally taught by Professor Ted Selker in MIT's Media Arts and Sciences Department. It is ideal for graduate students interested in making actual physical products that include computers and electronics.

This OpenCourseWare includes a full reading list, lecture notes covering design materials, tools and sensors as well as a slide show of student projects. If you're interested in taking this free course, visit the intelligent engineering design course page.
