ME 216M: Introduction to the Design of Smart Products

This course will focus on the technical mechatronic skills as well as the human factors and interaction design considerations required for the design of smart products and devices. Students will learn techniques for rapid prototyping of smart devices, best practices for physical interaction design, fundamentals of affordances and signifiers, and interaction across networked devices. Students will be introduced to design guidelines for integrating electrical components such as PCBs into mechanical assemblies and consider the physical form of devices, not just as enclosures but also as a central component of the smart product. Prerequisites include: CS106A, E40, and ME 210, or instructor approval.

ME 219: The Magic of Materials and Manufacturing

Intended for design-oriented students who anticipate imagining and then creating new products with a focus on materiality and brand or design and business. Assumes basic knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes which results from taking ENGR 50, ME 203, or equivalent course/life experience. Goal is to acquire professional foundation information about materials and materiality from a product design point-of-view, manufacturing processes and business systems inside a factory, and story-telling by book authorship, essay writing, and multimedia presentation. Goal is for students to exhibit a deep and life-long love of materials and manufacturing in order to make great products and tell a good story about each one.
