Introduction to Systems Design
Course Description: 


This is an introductory course into product design.  The course presents basic design concepts, including the development of technical specifications, the axiomatic approach to design, and the relationship between the form and function of the product with its materials and manufacturing processes.  The course also presents the principles of mechanical drawing through a series of drawing exercises, in which the students sketch complex parts and develop related CAD drawings.  Finally, each student participates in a group project, in which a commercial product is analyzed and discussed in a term paper.
