Students will be introduced to design-led innovation as a way of thinking to drive innovation for products, services and processes. Students learn how to approach problem solving from a human-centred design perspective and explore techniques that help to improve society, cities and economies through design innovation. Students will use design thinking principles and other participatory design practices to create, iterate and test an innovative solution. Hands-on explorations are typically undertaken in a collaborative environment. Students will develop a good working knowledge of design-led innovation methods that are applicable to any sector in society that needs improvement.
