Design Engineering 2-A

What is Design?

Design involves a range of human activities involving planning, organizing and envision something that doesn’t yet exist.

 

What is Design Thinking?

It is a catalyst in creating innovative solution to address complex, systematic problems that affect our global society in these times of rapid change in life cycle of product in modern era. Design thinking is generally defined as an analytic and creative process that engages a person in opportunities to experiment, create and prototype models, gather feedback, and redesign.

 What are the Phases of Design Thinking?

q  Discovery  ( I have a challenge)

q  Interpretation ( I learned something)

q  Ideation (I see an opportunity)

q  Experimentation (I have an idea)

q  Evolution ( I tried Something)

 

Need and Importance of Design: There is an ongoing debate to determine which engineering design projects provide the greatest learning opportunity for students. Variations include: whether the client is hypothetical, from industry, or a member of a community organization, whether the product is a paper design, prototype, or fully functioning product, and whether the length of the project is a few weeks long, multi-semester, or multi-year. In order to compare the merit of each of the factors and measure the impact on student learning, an assessment technique must be developed. While students develop many versatile skills through design projects, such as communication, teamwork, leadership, and engineering science content, the largest impact is shown in students’ ability to design. Design projects can be the sole location that students are exposed to lessons in how to design, so this is the ideal skill to measure, as it is less likely to be affected by external factors.

The design ability construct was defined as an ability to define the problem, evaluate alternatives, and communicate the design. This was derived from a literature review and accreditation materials.
