Welcome and thanks for your interest in building a better world using design and research!
In this course, students will work in teams of five on one of two projects (determined based on matching schedules and mutual interests). The composition of the teams will reflect the diversity of disciplines and interests of the students enrolled. Regardless of which project, all teams will be immersed in the same set of learning objectives and will also benefit from learning from the other teams; thus, it is important to maintain some flexibility so that we can ensure an ideal learning experience for all students.

Though we cannot guarantee which of the two projects you will work on, we will do our best to take into account your preferences. Please keep in mind that the final opportunity statement/problem definition will be finalized in December by the Fall's students' research. The projects will leverage scholarly intellectual capital to address the following:

Project 1: An issue related to United Nations' SDG of reducing/preventing poverty and how teams can build something that can make a difference (likely around FinTech).

Project 2: An issue related to United Nations' SDG of clean water and how teams can build something that can make a difference to improve access.
