SLO 4 - Students will be able to describe how they can use their discipline to make communities more sustainable

Chemical Product Design

This course provides a product design algorithm that can facilitate design and development of new or improved products. The design process emphasizes the concepts of sustainability, and discusses the impact of products, specifically chemical products on the community. Product design is discussed from the social, cultural and environmental perspectives, whereby the need for technology development for the social good becomes key.

Curating Safe Space: LIVE WORK LEARN PLAY GROW

In partnership with The Pride School Atlanta, this course explores advocacy through the design of space at three scales of architecture (in this case, as the design of building): interior space, the building, and the landscape. Can architects re-imagine the future of educational spaces and social equity by placing attention to the bidirectional relationships of space and behavior within the context of gender equality and human rights? Can advocacy become a mainstream practice, a political voice, for architects?

Prototyping Practices for Innovation

Prototypes are typically thought of as nearly complete products or technologies which are used to conduct system, alpha or beta testing near the end of a development process. This course is designed to expand on the idea of prototyping and teach how to employ a variety of tools as methods to inspire, contextualize, evaluate and inform any phase of any research or development activity.

Sound Poetics x Sound Politics

Building on the multimedia strategies of composition and process students begin to develop in ENGL 1101, this course in multimedia rhetoric examines the influence of sound on experiences of belonging and access in the spaces we occupy and travel through, from the immediate environs of Georgia Tech to public spaces and sites of development throughout Atlanta.  An initial unit builds a vocabulary for recognizing and analyzing sounds in what R.

Capstone Design

This section of M.E. capstone is lead by Dr. Cassandra Telenko. It will focus on human-centered design projects and sustainable design projects. Students will utilize prototyping, qualitative research methods, and sustainable evaluation tools to help understand human needs and opportunities and evaluate and improve solutions.

Senior Design

Senior Design is a mentored experience in which students begin the transition from school to engineering practice. In Senior Design, students must learn to apply the theories, methods, and tools they learn in the classroom to situations that are complex, where data are not given, and where the assumptions required by formal analyses may be violated. Therefore, Senior Design is more than a course. It is an opportunity for students to work with a client, team members, and faculty to accomplish something truly meaningful.

Econometric Analysis

An important objective of the course is to introduce regression analysis so that students are able to understand its applications in different fields in economics. Specifically, this semester, students will be choosing a research topic related to one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. They will formulate a research question, compile data and estimate cross-section models using STATA. 

Health and Design Studio

Farmer’s markets, especially in urban neighborhoods, provide opportunities not only for healthy lifestyles through improved nutrition and exercise, but also for sustaining communities.  For seniors, who struggle with loss of community and increasingly isolation as their mobility declines, neighborhood farmers’ markets provide a unique opportunity to overcome barriers to nutrition, activity, inclusion and social connectedness.  Universal design is a key component for ensuring equal access to farmer’s markets.  From the location of the market, to the neighborh

Necessary Tomorrows: Afrofuturism in Art, Architecture, and Design

This hands-on seminar/workshop will curate, develop materials for, design, and install the upcoming exhibition, NECESSARY TOMORROWS : AFROFUTURISM IN ART, ARCHITECTURE, & DESIGN.  As an aesthetic, political, and epistemological movement, Afrofuturism has been steadily gaining currency and generating broader interest over the past few decades. The movement's ethos has become urgently relevant to our present times.
