MIDE 215 – Design Thinking, Game Changer, 1 credit

Instructor: Professor Collin Smith

Do you like food? Are you looking for an internship-like experience this summer?

In this project-based summer course we will be working to help small business restaurants overcome the effects of the Covid 19 Pandemic utilizing a design thinking approach.

This course is open to all. Most of the class time will be spent on experiential activities involving a consulting project with industry partners. Sprint lectures followed by client-project work sessions. We will also have weekly engagement with industry professionals to shape the learning experience and the direction of the project outcomes.

Class meets on Tue/Thur 1:00-4:30pm… again, most of this time will be spent actively working on the client project.

Tuition for this one credit course is $$3,160. Limited need-based aid may be available from the Office of Financial Aid.
