Intro to Entrepreneurial Design
ENTR 390.005 (with choice of section)
This intro course invites aspiring designers, hackers, and makers from across all 19 schools/colleges to build foundational knowledge of entrepreneurial design. Each week, students will be introduced to a new tool towards the creation of an entrepreneurial “tool-kit” and will have the opportunity to apply these tools to work being completed in a hands-on lab. Current lab options include: Extended Reality; 3-D Printing; Hardware, Coding and IoT.
ENTR 390.008 LAB: Hardware, Coding, IoT is one of three lab options taken in combination with the Intro to Entrepreneurial Design lecture to familiarize students with product development, the prototyping of IoT hardware and software solutions, and the process of ‘whiteboarding’ ideas to life through the development of a final project. Students will gain hands-on experience utilizing microcontrollers, sensors, code, and no-code solutions through the design process from initial ideation to a functional prototype.
ENTR 390.009 LAB: 3D Printing is one of three lab options taken in combination with the Intro to ENTR Design lecture to provide instruction on and hands-on experience with 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC milling, 3D scanning, and CAD. Students will develop CAD skills using AutoDesk Fusion 360 and will integrate 3D scan data into their designs utilizing various Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) applications.
ENTR 390.010 LAB: Extended Reality is one of three lab options taken in combination with the Intro to ENTR Design lecture to introduce students to the process & purposes of interfacing between the digital and physical worlds of Extended Reality (XR). Students will experiment with different display devices, explore their application and purposes, and practice with various software pipelines for creation of a protype that captures their vision.
