Course title
Exercises in Inventive and Creative Design


Course description
This exercise is paired with Inventive and Creative Design. Therefore, the exercises are implemented along the lecture. A development process which includes a planning, basic design, detailed development design and structural analysis is learned through the exercise. You design it using CAD software, Solidworks since a digital engineering technology is introduced. The Universal design and a reverse engineering techniques are used in the upper development as well as the CAE structural analysis. If you take the lecture, you have to also take Inventive and Creative Design. This class is done at Hanoi University of Science and Technology as a global project based learning in the end of February.
Purpose of class
