DNB310 ID Studio 6: Systems Design

This unit introduces the concept of systems thinking and its application to design to solve complex societal, cultural and environmental challenges. It advances on Industrial design concepts, methods, strategies and processes for innovation with a particular focus on future products and systems. It also builds and consolidates knowledge and experience gained in earlier Industrial Design units, in particular skills and knowledge in the area of systems design. To be able to tackle the most critical problems of our time, we must broaden our view to incorporate a more holistic and comprehensive view of design and systems. This requires the understanding and application of novel systems thinking approaches to the design of products, services and systems that are viable, feasible and desirable for people and the environment.
