In Spring 2019, the Industrial Design Program in collaboration with the Department of Computer Science and the Institute for Creativity, Arts and Technology will support six interdisciplinary student teams working collaboratively on a semester long project. The industrial design majors will treat this class as a 6-credit capstone studio project. The computer science majors will treat this class as a 3-credit Creative Computing capstone project, with the option of signing up for an additional co-located 3-credit design skills independent study. The business majors will similarly treat this class as a 3-credit capstone project, with the option of signing up for an additional co-located 3-credit design skills independent study. The combined studio will meet on Monday and Wednesday, with the studio time length determined by the number of credit hours.
Each team of four students will work on creating a solution aimed at addressing one of the following topics: Aging in Place; Autonomous Vehicles and Us; and Design for Empowerment. Final projects will be presented at a public end of semester event. The interdisciplinary teams will have access to design shops, 3D printers and external prototyping agencies, as well as access to area stake holders.
You will be advised by faculty in design (Akshay Sharma), computer science (Aisling Kelliher), and business (Howard Haines), along with industry experts.
Course Objective - This course will introduce the skills and abilities necessary for 2 and 3-dimensional computer aided modeling as applied in industrial design. At the end of this course, students will have explored in depth one primary software package, Autodesk Fusion 360. The focus will be on laying a good foundational understanding of parametric modeling and navigating the 3D environment. Additionally, students will learn strategies for translating ID concepts into models that incorporate manufacturing considerations.
