Thesis Studio

Course Number



6 Units

In this final studio course of the MDes program, students develop proposals for novel designed artifacts – which may consist of physical objects, products, services, environments, curios, interfaces, or processes – that employ emerging technologies to produce positive impacts for humans, culture, the environment, or society at large. Through a guided sequence of progressive milestones of thinking and making, the work of the studio culminates in a final critique, a final exhibition of projects, and a discursive text that documents this process and positions the product in a broader social and technical context.
