ME 208: Patent Law and Strategy for Innovators and Entrepreneurs (MS&E 278)

Inventors and entrepreneurs have four concerns related to patent law: protecting their inventions in the very early stages of product development, determining the patentability of their invention, avoiding infringement of a competitor's patent, and leveraging their patent as a business asset. This course will address each of these concerns through the application of law cases and business cases to an invention of the Studentâ¿¿s choice. Although listed as a ME/MSE course, the course is not specific to any discipline or technology.

ME 211: ReMake: Design Lessons from Restoration

Focus is on the restoration of the 1962 Cadillac DeVille project car as a design investigation. Topics include: What makes a car a classic? How does this car express luxury, and how is that different from contemporary luxury products? What does the car say about the American identity, and how has that changed over the past half-century? Every student can expect to get their hands dirty; prior automotive experience is not required. Goal is to have the car operational again by the end of Autumn Quarter. Preference to early graduate and advanced undergraduate students. Enrollment limited to 15.

ME 215: From Maps to Meaning

One of the oldest visual tools created by humans to make sense of the complexities of our world, maps are unique in their ability to synthesize data, convey meaning through spatial logic, and deliver information at high resolution. They are also incredible tools for communication, data sorting, and insight finding. This is a hands-on, project-centered course where students will create maps to to synthesize complex information and also use maps as a tool for working on design problems. Students will tackle three main projects and several shorter assignments.
