This course will focus on addressing a design problem specific to an industry or government client. Note that the design problem and client(s) will change from year to year as this course will always incorporate a partner from outside the university. Students will be introduced to the partner and will work in teams, drawing on their subject expertise. More information about KMD courses can be found here.
