Description

While special product design criteria will be established for this IPRO study abroad experience, in general, good products will:

  1. Solve for a real user need / address a real market (should be attractive to an existing company, venture fund, or NGO);
  2. Have ten parts or less (this is about the level of complexity that your team will be able to prototype);
  3. Can fit through a door (this is a good way to keep the scale of the product small); and
  4. Can be prototyped with the resources and funds available.

Product design naturally leverages the skills of mechanical engineers, architects, and aerospace engineers, but the class will be interesting and relevant to all disciplines and students interested in design, entrepreneurship, prototyping and product development. Final deliverables consist of a prototype that demonstrates the benefits of the concept and a preliminary business model for the idea.
