Introduction to Design (Hardback)

Awaiting publication


This book outlines the design process for freshmore engineering and architecture undergraduates, combining studio learning with a project-based learning environment and highlighting the best of each. It is intended to accompany students in their first full design project-from idea to product-throughout one twelve-week term. The pace, depth and breadth are ideal for novice design students, combining individual and team assignments and going through the four phases, or 4Ds of design: discover, define, develop and deliver. Examples of successful product designs are given throughout the book, as a motivation for the novice designer, along with up-to-date references.
