ME 101: Visual Thinking

ME101 is at the foundation class for all designers and creative people at Stanford. It teaches you how to access your creativity through a series of projects, all of which have been redesigned so that they can be accomplished in an online learning environment. Visual thinking, a powerful adjunct to other problem solving modalities, is developed and exercised in the context of solving some fun and challenging design problems. Along the way, the class expands you access to your imagination, helps you see more clearly with the "mind's eye:¿, and learn how to do rapid visualization and prototyping. The emphasis on basic creativity, learning to build in the 3D world, and fluent and flexible idea production.

ME 102: Foundations of Product Realization

Students develop the language and toolset to transform design concepts into tangible models/prototypes that cultivate the emergence of mechanical aptitude. Visual communication tools such as sketching, orthographic projection, and 2D/3D design software are introduced in the context of design and prototyping assignments. Due to COVID-19 restrictions during AY20-21, in-person use of the Product Realization Lab may be limited or not permitted. Lab kits will be sent to enrolled students to support exploration of prototyping and mechanical design techniques that will be practiced during synchronous lectures and coaching sessions. Project documentation, reflection, and presentations are opportunities for students to find their design voice and practice sharing it with others. Prerequisite: ME 1 or ME 101 or consent of instructor.
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 3

ME 104: Mechanical Systems Design

How to design mechanical systems through iterative application of intuition, brainstorming, analysis, computation and prototype testing. Design of custom mechanical components, selection of common machine elements, and selection of electric motors and transmission elements to meet performance, efficiency and reliability goals. Emphasis on high-performance systems. Independent and team-based design projects. Prerequisites: PHYSICS 41; ENGR 14; ME 80; ME 102; ME 103 or 203. Must have PRL pass. Must attend lecture. Recommended: ENGR 15; CS 106A; ME 128 or ME 318. ME104: We are excited about our new plan for ME 104, and we think students will have a great experience even under these conditions. We'll be changing up the lecture elements of the course, switching to asynchronous videos and small synchronous coaching groups. We *will* have hands-on projects, switching from two larger projects with on-campus fabrication to several smaller projects built at home using the personal 3D printers students in these courses will receive and an ME104-specific kit we'll send out. Some of these changes might even improve the course over the long run . We hope students will come build with us! It should be fun. Steve Collins, stevecollins@stanford.edu

ME 104B: Designing Your Life

This course applies the mindsets and innovation principles of design thinking to the "wicked problem" of designing your life and vocation. The course introduces design thinking processes through application: students practice awareness and empathy, define areas of life and work on which hey want to work, ideate about ways to move forward, try small prototypes, and test their assumptions. The course is highly interactive. The course will include brief readings, writing, reflections, and in-class exercises. Expect to practice ideation and prototyping methodologies, decision making practices and to participate in hands on activities in pairs, trios, and small groups. Also includes roleplaying, assigned conversations with off campus professionals, guest speakers, and individual mentoring and coaching. It will conclude with creation of 3 versions of the next 5 years and prototype ideas to begin making those futures a reality. Open to juniors, seniors and 5th year coterms, all majors. All enrolled and waitlisted students should attend class on day 1 for admission. Additional course information at http://www.designingyourlife.org.

ME 110: Design Sketching

Design Visualization, offers students a unique opportunity to acquire a new (visual) language over the span of one short quarter. nnnImagine a process whereby you can close your eyes, and, after a few short weeks, leveraging established Design Principles, open them, and imagine/draw virtually anything that comes to mind.... this is our pledge to you, independent of your previous sketching experience.nnnThis course melds basics with Industrial Design discipline (which creates the aesthetic, experience of products and services), dividing it into two parts; the ability to representationally draw in three-dimensions, while exploring the nuances of form & materials. ME110 initially focuses on the first component, building the structural foundation for perspective drawing, then introducing basic lighting and shading theory to 'complete the picture'. Analysis gives way to individual choice, as confidence builds. nnnWhile we express & explore solutions with traditional analog medium (pens, paper, etc.;-- supplied!), we bridge 'the digital divide', expressing final projects in several media choices, stirring in portfolio & professional advice enroute.

ME 110B: Digital Design Principles and Applications

Building upon foundation design principles, project-based individual / group exploration and critique facilitates a self-guided learning process, where analytical problem-solving approaches are cultivated through real-time implementation in digital tools. A series of diverse projects are brought together in conjunction with related student project portfolio development. Class Prerequisites: Students must have completed ME110 with high levels of understanding, engagement. May be repeat for credit
Terms: Aut, Win, Spr | Units: 2 | Repeatable 2 times (up to 4 units total)

ME 115B: Product Design Methods

This course will introduce the basic concepts of human factors and demonstrate the importance of understanding and considering human capabilities and limits in product and system design. This will include an overview of both cognitive and physical human characteristics, methods to analyze human factors constraints, and design methods for prototyping and evaluating the usability of physical products and systems. In this course individual- and team-based design projects are used to emphasize the integration between human factors analysis and evaluation, authoring design requirements and translating these to both physical products and systems.Prerequisites: ME101, ME115A, ME110. Strongly recommended: ME102, Psych 1
Terms: Spr | Units: 4 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci
Instructors: Follmer, S. (PI)

ME 115C: Designing Your Business

Designing Your Business: introduces business concepts and personal capabilities to designers critical to the development, launch, and success of new products and services in for-profit and social enterprises. Functionally, students will learn to build the business case for new products, including skills such as market sizing, cost estimation, P&L modeling, and raising capital. In addition, business functions such as marketing, growth, and product management and the role of designers in businesses will be explored through class visitors and case studies. Projects culminating in a final presentation to persuade industry experts will develop teamwork and individual effectiveness in putting all the skills together to persuade and mobilize resources through live presentations, written communications, and videos.
