ME 221: Green Design Strategies and Metrics

Foundation in sustainable product design principles, reinforced by conceptual design projects. Discuss what aspects of sustainability matter most for different products. Application of dozens of strategies to improve product sustainability. Frameworks, measurements, and decision-making tools to navigate the complexities of designing greener products. Life-cycle analysis, materials, energy use, biomimicry, product-service systems, persuasive design, design for end-of-life, and systems thinking.

ME 223: Innovating Water Solutions for Developing Countries

Primarily for graduate students and seniors with strong design and mechanical engineering backgrounds. Currently 1.1 billion people lack safe drinking water and 2.6 billion people lack adequate sanitation. The FAO states that by 2025 1.9 billion people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity, and two-thirds of the world population could be under stress conditions. The Stanford ChangeLabs has initiated a project called the 100 Liter Water project, designed to form strategies to deliver a minimum of 100 liters of water per day per family to the poorest communities in the world. This is a self-directed project class restricted to 15 students selected through an application process. Students work individually and in teams on water related technologies such as solar based low flow pumping systems, rainwater catchment systems, and storage systems. The studio class entails working on the design of solar powered low flow pumps, rainwater catchment systems, and very low cost storage systems designed for sparsely distributed communities in water stressed regions of the world. Students expected to work with autonomy and self-direction, going through multiple rounds of prototyping to generate breakthrough technologies designed to make deep impact.

ME 224: The Consumer Mind and Behavior Design

This course will introduce new theories and research concerning neuroscience and behavioral psychology to examine models for designing user habits. Students will learn how to use the latest behavior change methodologies from industry-leading experts to design or re-design a customer experience. Course topics will be taught in the context of design thinking: empathize-define-ideate-prototype-test. Students will leave the class having prototyped, tested, and improved a user behavior.

ME 225: Mystery of Manufacturing

Mystery of Manufacturing is intended for design- and engineering-oriented students who anticipate or have an interest in launching products. Where the cousin of this class, ME219, is an overview of fabrication and factory systems, this course will look at manufacturing systems more holistically: what does it take to get a product from your idea into peoples' hands? We'll look at factors that drive location, distribution, and supply chain decisions, and we'll look closely at the inner workings of factories. nnnThis course assumes basic knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes resulting from ENGR 50, ME 203, ME 219 or equivalent course/life experience. The goal is to acquire a professional foundation in factory manufacturing systems and the business of manufacturing through story-telling, essay writing, and multimedia presentation. We hope students will exhibit a deep and life-long love of the complexity and flexibility of manufacturing systems in order to launch great products into the world.

ME 226: Designing Sustainable Behavior

How do you design a product so people will use it in the most sustainable way? Through practical design exercises you experience how selected design tools can help you affect the behavior of your target group. The course consists of an 8-hour workshop on Saturday April 6th in Studio2 at the d.school, followed by a group project finishing April 24th. Students may request to only audit the workshop by emailing jdaae@stanford.edu. The course builds upon and contributes to an ongoing research project. Prerequisite: training in product design.

ME 231: Educating Young STEM Thinkers (EDUC 139X, EDUC 239X, ME 139)

The course will introduce students to the design thinking process, the national conversations about the future of STEM careers, and provide opportunities to work with middle school students and K-12 teachers in STEM-based after-school activities and intercession camps. The course will be both theory and practice focused. The purpose is twofold; to provide reflection and mentoring opportunities for students to learn about pathways to STEM careers and to introduce mentoring opportunities with young STEM thinkers.
