New for Fall 2015!

Announcing a new course sequence in New Product Development:

The University of Saint Thomas School of Engineering is excited to announce a new course series on New Product Development. The courses will be held in the recently expanded Design Clinic and build on a well-recognized culture of applied learning. The course sequence will cover challenging aspects of new product development, such as, the early product conceptualization, the design process and management. The courses will provide an opportunity for graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in new product development to test themselves in a unique fast-paced environment. The new Design Clinic space offers outstanding resources to gain experience in these important aspects of new product development.

The first course to be offered Fall 2015 is ETLS 699-02 "Translating Ideas to New Product Concepts”. Within this course, students will explore the early stages of product development in high-growth technical areas such as preventative healthcare, consumer products, big data, and the Internet of Things. A series of guest speakers will address critical new product development topics and provide excellent networking opportunities throughout the semester. Students will form teams and work together to develop their own new products in these areas or respond to specific topics. Seed funding will be provided by the University and the teams will be mentored and evaluated by a panel of industry experts.
