graduate design development
Students develop and present a comprehensive design project of individual interest in this course. Emphasis is on the application of research completed in the Design Research course to a commercial project that entails all aspects of skill, knowledge and creative problem solving acquired to date. The project must meet the program’s guidelines and departmental approval. Each student presents and defends the finished project to a jury of professional designers. Upon successful completion of this course, students will demonstrate the ability to complete a comprehensive design project illustrating all of their skills and knowledge as pre-professionals while taking ownership of their individual vision as designers.
