  • Project Definition & Goals
    • Definition
      • To create an undergraduate experience in engineering, which prepares the student for a professional career. It will reflect the changing demands of industry, incorporating the new interests and industry experience of faculty and administration. To be successful in real world technological fields, an interdisciplinary background must be obtained; therefore, the undergraduate engineering programs should encompass these dynamic changes.
    • Define project goals – to design a major to keep pace with the demands of industry. See project definition above for more info
    • 2. Research - spoke with friends and people in our classes to find out which majors they were interested in, and what kind of jobs they would want after graduation. Also, looked at what majors are currently offered at Berkeley; went through the course catalog
    • 3. Brainstorm – initially, we came with a couple of ideas each, and then we sat down as a group and threw out ideas for possible majors, expanding on many and taking them in different directions. Came up with over a 100 possible majors .
    Team Design Process
  • Team Design Process 4. Vote – we each chose 3 majors from the total list to narrow it down to the top 10 ideas. Two members of our team dropped the class 5. Focus – considered the suggestions from the feedback of our first report, discussed the majors further, combined some majors into one, and came up with our top 3 majors 6. Delegate - split up the research between group members, so each one of us became an expert on one major. Two people for 2 of the 3 majors, and 1 person for the third major. We each did in-depth research on our major and gave feedback on other majors to the other group members
    • 7. Prototype - for each major, we created a schedule of classes, as well as sample 4-year plans for each major.
    • 8. Test - created a user survey and surveyed (mostly) current Cal students about their interests, and which major they would be most interested in. Asked also about which elements they would like to add to their majors
    • 9. Refine - based on user survey results, we narrowed it down to one top major, and improved on the details that were not clear as well as added elements to major based on user suggestions.
    • 10. Present - create website for final major and present it to the class
    Team Design Process
  • Background: Brainstorming
    • We gathered over 100 ideas for new majors
    • Top 10:

      • High School Seniors -> Fifth Year Graduates
    • If you could add something to your major, what would you add?
      • “ More practical application training, like with Flash, Access, etc…”
      • “ Classes that tie everything together”
      • “ More business emphasis”
      • “ More design classes”
      • “ More practical classes, too much theory and no practice right now”

      • Business & Engineering
      • Design Engineering
    • Close second:
      • Interaction Engineering
    • Rethink “Fashion”
      • Apparel Engineering
    • Survey and get feedback earlier in design process in order to create majors based on information gathered
    • In survey, ask more background information in order to understand demographics better
    • Commitment from team members key to a successful project – lost two members early on in the semester

  • Conclusion
    • Our hypothesis was correct!
    • Design Engineering was the most favored major
    • More research and development needs to follow before implementing this major into U.C. Berkeley
