ENGR 231: Transformative Design

Too many alums are doing what they've always been told they're good at, and are living with regret and a sense that they're just resigned to doing this thing for the rest of their lives. Capabilities displaced their values as the primary decision driver in their lives. Our ultimate goal is to restore a sense of agency and passion into the lives of current Stanford students by creating the space to explore and experiment with the greatest design project possible: YOUR LIFE. We will turn d.school tools and mindsets onto the topic of our lives -- not in theory, but in reality -- and will prototype changes to make life more fulfilling and rewarding. We will actively empathize and experiment in your life, so if you don't want to do that kind of self-examination, this class will not be a good fit for you.

ENGR 311C: Expanding Engineering Limits: Culture, Diversity, and Gender (FEMGEN 311C)

This course considers how culture shapes and impacts engineering, with a particular focus on the cultural aspects of gender that affect who becomes an engineer, what problems get solved, and the quality of solutions, design, technology, and products. We will examine engineering cultures and gender through the lens of ¿design thinking¿, which is an increasingly visible component of engineering education and practice. Design processes are determined by the designers, their disciplinary backgrounds, and the methods they use. How do the background characteristics of the designer affect products and development in innovation and research? Does gender matter? What about other characteristics of the designer? How can design thinking help to find sustainable solutions and also consider gender and diversity perspectives?
