CP1803 - Design Thinking

Credit points: 3
Year: 2019
Student Contribution Band: Band 2
Administered by: College of Science and Engineering

This subject is only available to students admitted to the Diploma of Higher Education

This subject provides students with the design process, interpretation, ideation, experimentation, evolution of design solutions, design formulation and design thinking. Students will develop essential design skills of creating, imaging, generating, iterating, communicating and consolidating. Collaboratively students will work together in teams to design, iterate, implement and validate computing solutions. Through projects, students will develop problem-solving skills, communication skills, presentation skills, project management skills and also build creative systems for a range of applications. Students will learn basic approaches to creative group problem solving working in teams in the form of a "sprint" event. The sprint environment will provide students an opportunity to develop these skills via a short-term 2-day design sprint to collectively analyse a problem then design and partially implement a practical solution, which is a mandatory part of this subject.
