  • 2. Approaches to creativity
    • Talks about creativity and innovation
    • Workshops on creative techniques
    • A module on creativity (4 weeks)
    • Courses on creative techniques for engineers
    • Total immersion of engineering & design students in highly creative environments: multidisciplinary projects
  • 3. 5 engineering courses: Diseño de sistemas embebidos Proyecto integral de tecnologías digitales Proyecto integral de tecnologías electrónicas Proyecto integrador de tecnologías electrónicas I-II 7 industrial design studios: Proyecto de diseño industrial (1-7) Aim: compulsory multidisciplinary courses (years 2 to 4)
  • 4. So far: Proyecto integral de tecnologías electrónicas + Proyecto de diseño industrial 5 (Social-based products and services) 40+ students in multidisciplinary teams (3 to 4)
  • 5. 3 stages: social needs, concept generation and project development Social Intelligence Design: “integrate and understand the interactions between designing and social intelligence”
  • 6.
    • Project themes (stage 1):
    • Employment, security, health, sustainability, education, transport...
    • Rapid ethnographic techniques
    • Aim: creative problem formulation
    • (Also, the most problematic stage for engineering students)
  • 7.  
  • 8.
    • Concept generation (stage 2)
    • Divergent creative thinking
    • Extensive state of the art
    • SID viewpoint: must include a community
    • Project development (stage 3)
    • - Functional prototype (arduino)
    • - Mock-up models (video, rapid prototyping)
    • - Project report
  • 9.
    • URBAN REFLECTOR: Social Integration of Homeless Children
    • MaCaCo: Social Intelligence (empathy) for Children
    • We.Share: Give a Ride against Global Warming (carpooling)
    • RUEDAS: Social-based Energy Transformation System for the Daily Shopping
    • JIT-Eat: Social and Technological Approach to Reduce Waiting Time Perception in Malls
    • Wireless solution for pedestrian education and social dynamics
    • RAUSID: Social-based Radio Frequency Assistant in Urban Zones

  • 10.
    • Attending students’ emotions
    • Engineers become anxious in the first stages
    • Industrial Designers are systematically creative
    • Potential user evaluation of prototypes
    • Social design theme keeps high motivation
    • Projects with social impact emerge naturally
    • Collaboration across departments
    • External evaluations
    • Potential for business incubation
