This unit explores the relationship between design and industry to develop skills in the planning, development, and production of products and services for a target market or use-case scenario. You will learn how to identify opportunities for new product and service development, be introduced to production workflows and supply chains, and develop industry-focused design and communication skills. You will also develop foundational professional skills for project planning and management. The output of the unit is a proposal for a viable product or service advanced through a process of opportunity identification and analysis, iterative design development, and testing.
