As the world is experiencing many profound and rapid technological and social changes, students must be properly prepared to operate in this new environment. Students need to develop next generation products, systems, and environments which are a result of 'smart' thinking and are in themselves 'smart/innovative'. Drawing upon and developing the practical skill sets and design thinking experiences established in the first two years of the curriculum, this subject makes an in-depth examination of how things work and should work to benefit larger sociocultural contexts. It provides students with an understanding of the technology that makes products work and enables humans to interact and control products, systems and environments.
