ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
ENVD 1110 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Environmental Products of Design
Building on the foundation introduced in EPoD Studio 1, this studio introduces students to more advanced methodologies and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale while considering the interdisciplinary nature of the other specializations. Using complementary skills in 3D modeling, drawing, diagramming, and through physical making and fabrication, students explore imaginative and innovative design solutions of small-scale products.
EPOD 2100 - Studio 1: Foundations of Environmental Products of Design
Spring 2022 / Spring 2023
Immersive, project based studio environment where students focus on the design of products at a human scale with an emphasis on more advanced 3D modeling, parametric design, advanced visualization, and file-to-factory fabrication methods. Recommended corequisite: EPOD 2004.
EPOD 3100 - Studio 2: Intermediate Environmental Products of Design
Spring 2021 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
Introduces students to innovative emerging technologies and techniques in digital fabrication and design through a project-based studio environment. Students will be asked to develop design solutions that could be leveraged to benefit humanity through material investigations, cradle-to-cradle methodology, and more advanced methods in design optimization.
EPOD 4115 - Materials and Manufacturing Processes in Product Design
Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
This course explores the creation of products through an environmental lens as they relate to Material Science, Manufacturing Methods and Production Systems. The course will investigate innovative alternative materials and production approaches that improve upon pre-existing materials and paradigms. This includes sustainable materials, advanced production techniques at a variety of scales and a thorough understanding of the environmental cost incurred in the creation of products.
