Overview

Design thinking is a powerful holistic process that focuses on people and their needs and experiences. The process is iterative and flexible, emphasizing the collaboration between innovators and users. The design thinking aims to shift the paradigm from the innovation centered on technology and economy towards the one on human needs and experiences.

In the course, the students will learn and develop the essential skills behind design thinking. The course will enable the students to empathize with people, identify their needs, and systematically ideate, prototype, and test ideas. Through a series of practical and accumulative exercises, the students will create a design-thinking project.
