Design Next coordinates design teaching currently for about 4,000 students annually. These students come from across the campus, but mostly from the Faculty of Engineering.
The unit teaches three courses. DESN1000 is an introductory design course that teaches design process. DESN2000 teaches concept design with a user-centered approach. DESN3000 teaches design in the context of business and ethics. All three courses build on a constructive pedagogy and they teach teamwork, project management, and communication.
