Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

[1]    Describe principles of product design and development in solving engineering related problems.

[2]    Apply design principles for sustainable product design and development.

[3]    Produce a design prototype which complies with the design project requirement.

[4]    Demonstrate a design prototype and communicate effectively with the community.

[5]    Demonstrate ability to collaborate among team members in a multidisciplinary environment.



Integrated Design Project focuses on integration of learning principles in multidisciplinary application for product design project and prototype development that include marketing, concept design process and sustainability, material selection, manufacturing processes, project management, and manufacturing cost. This design project applies team-based approach. The team-based approach will improve teamwork and communication skills in accordance to the realities of industrial practice. Students are expected to be exposed to complex and essential team roles during the development of the design project. Emphasize is also given on issues related to quality of the prototypes produced and marketability of the design projects. Industrial talks by experts from the fields are organized to ensure exposure and sharing of expertise between industrial practitioners and the students.
