Course Objectives Improving the skill of using universal design principles and criteria learned in the previous terms consistently and efficiently in accordance with the design purposes. Multi dimensional problem solving; enabling students to produce solutions, which demonstrate conceptual, functional and formal consistency, efficient, which meet the needs and are manufacturable by industrial means in accordance with the specific needs of defined target user group.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Able to identify design problems considering related market needs and constrains by cooperating with a company from Turkish industry.
  • Able to plan the whole project process from beginning to presentation and follow this plan. In addition, able to handle problems and find proper solutions which may possibly occur during any project.
  • Able to identify investor, manufacturer, consumer, user and society relationships and demonstrates intellectually, ethically and pragmatically balanced approach towards each of them.
  • Able to plan and conduct project related technical/technological, manufacturing and user research and translates the outcomes into product design proposals through analysis schemas, digital and/or pen & paper sketches, low and/or high quality process mock-ups. Able to prepare presentations which are suitable for the nature of the project by also preparing digital animations and working prototypes when necessary.
  • Able to prepare design proposals which are coherent with the identified design problems and project aims. Able to demonstrate the aims/ outcome consistency with the help of documentation of each step of the process.
Course Content Project development in compliance with the companies. Gaining professional life experience of each student as a result of working with a firm (design process such as design strategy, product range, material and production techniques of the firm).
