Description

Capstone product design project. Students work in groups to devise and develop design ideas, build and test their design prototypes and evaluate performance. Ideally, projects will be devised in collaboration with an industry partner. A final report will include the design specifications, idea generation, prototyping and evaluation, recommended manufacturing methods and an economic analysis. The final project may form the basis of an entry to an approved internationally recognised student design competition such as the Warman Design and Build Competition (Australiasia) or the James Dyson Award (International).

Learning Outcomes

  • To demonstrate the ability to work in a team to generate innovative product design ideas for a client, including identifying and addressing any potential issues around indigenous and Maori and other indigenous group ownership and traditional use, and to follow the process through working prototypes to a final recommended product design
  •  Be able to communicate design specifications, project proposals, and final product designs to the level expected in industry
  •  Be able to recommend feasible manufacturing methods for their chosen design
  •  Be able to carry out a detailed economic analysis of manufacturing costs and economic feasibility of a final product design
