EDID402 Design for Social Impact 3cr.


The first project is constructed to give students the broad understanding of SDI and includes
precedent studies, product/service development, research, synthesis and a final presentation.
Students work closely with a chosen non-profit or social enterprise as a means for deconstructing
and understanding as well as first hand insights into the complicated system. For the second
project, students follow the design process from inception to finalization with the end
deliverable as a presentation to pitch to venture capitalist, non-profits, endowments or community
leaders to incite traction, funding or future collaboration.
