ME 10AX: Design Thinking and the Art of Innovation

Design Thinking and the Art of Innovation is a hands-on seminar that introduces students to the multi-disciplinary practice of product, service, and experience design through the lenses of both art and engineering. A project-based, studio-driven class promises a deep dive into Design Thinking, Stanford's unique approach to problem finding and problem solving. Along with a survey of tools such as need finding and ethnography, structured brainstorming, rapid prototyping, visual communication, and story-telling, the class will include thought provoking and inspirational field trips to San Francisco's MOMA and other Bay Area museums, The San Francisco Ferry Building, and IDEO, the internationally renowned design and innovation firm headquartered in Palo Alto.nnThis course is designed to introduce students to cutting edge techniques and processes used in the field of design. Through emphasis on design problems where aesthetics, technology, human behavior, and business needs overlap, students will both increase visual literacy and develop creative competence. The course provides an overview of contemporary professional design practice and exposes students to the world of design and the "wicked problems" that are the grist for the mill of design work.

ME 21N: Renaissance Machine Design

Preference to freshmen. Technological innovations of the 1400s that accompanied the proliferation of monumental art and architecture by Brunelleschi, da Vinci, and others who designed machines and invented novel construction, fresco, and bronze-casting techniques. The social and political climate, from the perspective of a machine designer, that made possible and demanded engineering expertise from prominent artists. Hands-on projectsto provide a physical understanding of Renaissance-era engineering challenges and introduce the pleasure of creative engineering design. Technical background not required.

ME 103Q: Product Realization: Making is Thinking

Product Realization encompasses those processes required to transform a concept into the creation of a functional, useful, and beautiful product. In this project-based seminar, students develop product realization confidence and intuition using the rich array of tools available in the Product Realization Lab as well as industry-standard design engineering software programs and course readings in design/realization philosophy. Interactions with the Stanford design engineering community as well as field trips to iconic Bay area design engineering firms round out students' experience. Learning Goals: Build confidence in transforming concepts into products through foundational texts and rigorous exercises, master integrated design/realization software and tools through hands-on learning and practice, and engage with the Stanford design engineering community on campus and well beyond.
