IWKS 4500 - Bio-Design and Innovation


Introduces the biodesign innovation process, which involves identifying important human needs and inventing meaningful solutions to address them. The course examines how biotechnology and bio-inspired innovation improve the form and function of our design world through innovative materials and novel approaches to developing buildings, food, medicine, infrastructure and more. Readings and in-class debates will raise critical issues in contemporary bioethics. For their final projects, students will choose to create and prototype a speculative biodesign concept, or work in the bio lab on the development of a real-world biodesign solution of their choosing. Suggested Background: IWKS 2100 & 3100. Max hours: 3 Credits. Semester Hours: 3 to 3
