Students develop an understanding of a multidisciplinary design process and experience through working in teams across pillars to design and construct models or prototypes. In this experience the design process is placed into a broader development context. Aspects addressed include the understanding of design issues, design and technological research, design reasoning and judgment, assessment of design alternatives, modelling techniques for different development phases, transforming user’s needs and information into technical specifications or design strategies, oral and written communication, and teamwork as a necessary part of resolving the challenges in designing and making a substantive design or prototype.
