Join us for our Case School of Engineering (CSE) Human-Centered Design Challenge and collaborate with Sears think[box] to learn the foundations of design thinking. 

What is Design Thinking and Human-Centered Design?

Design thinking is a process and a mindset to understand people and their problems before developing the solutions. Human-centered design prioritizes empathy as a tool to better identify, understand and solve problems. This framework involves fast-paced data collection through interviews and observation, synthesis of information and iterative prototyping of creative solutions.

Course Outcomes

Through this course, you will hone a design mindset and problem solving skills that will shape your career path and prepare you for future design and engineering challenges. You will have gained the tools to work collaboratively, identify core issues and create tailored solutions with confidence. This course will help you acquire the tools you need to gain a deeper understanding of how people are truly impacted by problems. 

What will you do?

  • Collaborate with your classmates and Sears think[box] staff

  • Learn human-centered design tools 

  • Apply design thinking to craft your college experience

  • Showcase your work to the Dean of Case School of Engineering

What is the commitment?

This four-week program requires eight hours per week. Half the time will be spent together in collaborative team workshops over Zoom in two two-hour sessions. The rest of the time will be spent on individual preparation and activities.

Groups will be formed on July 21 and future course meetings will be scheduled thereafter.
