Course Summary:

User-Centered Design 29:57 minutes

Using the faucet as an example, study the bewildering number of ways that hot and cold water can be delivered into a sink, reflecting the challenges of designing everyday things. Along the way, consider the principles that go into a successful design: affordances, signifiers, mapping, constraints, and feedback.

The Internal Combustion Engine 30:37 minutes

Begin the first of four lectures on automotive engineering by exploring that marvel of mechanical sophistication: the internal combustion engine. Professor Ressler uses homebuilt models to demonstrate the ingenious design of the four-stroke power cycle and how it works in perfect synchrony with a host of other engine sub-systems.

Learning Objective:

By the end of this course the student will learn the principles that go into a successful design: affordances, signifiers, mapping, constraints and feedback, and explain the marvel of mechanical sophistication: the internal combustion engine.
