My Five Minute Presenta/on University of St. Thomas School of Engineering Camille George, David Gasperino
Vision/Goal• Interdisciplinary base-‐of-‐the-‐pyramid product design seminar• Product design seminar for engineering senior design students focusing on emerging market technologies in the developing world• 2 semester, 1 credit / semester addi/on to senior design capstone -‐ adding content that teaches skills and techniques for eﬀec/ve product design in the developing world
Course Strategy Map maintain engineering incorporate health / develop / identify apply economics to learn engineering goal and scope develop concepts / complete detailed build and test design / log book, safety assessmentsSenior Design Objectives design process deﬁnition engineering concept tradeoffs designs / CAD protytpes drive design / cost document design within design, speciﬁcations analysis process process understanding the identify and document "wrap-up" identifying critical introduce need for develop approach link this objective to customer understand local customer / user package for nextSustainable Design stakeholders requirements - alternative forms of for testing within the tech transfer material / design visual feedback design team, techObjectives unknowns around constraints ﬁeld package transfer package communication/ roles / customs training materials Peace Corp unbuild-it modules - Davids lecture on charcoal press Design for supply Plows in Mexico / Shea butter lecture on behaviors GAP / ﬁndMaterials lecture on mission- Volunteer handbook D-Lab, ho creation, !!! need a book on professional tech design case study - chain, design for solar ovens - case communication case and approaches to GAP international creep - culture matters / hammer forging parametric analysis transfer packages - D-Lab / market study study / form coop testing within the standards ﬁnd similar materials (modern vs. local) communication ﬁeld / business more directed purpose provide students customs / gender towards product dev.

AHA! 1: Tech Transfer Package• Standardize project document "wrap-up" endpoints -‐ industry B.P.’s package for next design team, tech transfer package• Expose students to Dissemination of repositories for this tech transfer package to informa/on -‐ add to appropriate sources community knowledge• System for building good ideas -‐ preven/ng pre-‐ mature push of tech dev.

GAP 1: BOP Product Design Economics • Best prac/ce documents?• Case studies for student review?• Eﬀec/ve student ac/vi/es?
GAP 2 / AHA! 3: Health and Safety Standards for BOP Product Design• Best prac/ce documents? • Find interna/onal design standards, create base • Case studies for student template for students review? • Have students review • Eﬀec/ve student template and ac/vi/es? augment , consider ethics?
Commitment• Next Steps – Build material/ac/vity/resource base for 2 credit seminar to parallel senior design – Determine how to get credits for class approved / secure student incen/ves• Timeframe/Schedule – 5 year phased deployment• Needs/Partnerships – short term: ﬁll in GAPs – long term: systema/ze BOP design seminar, bring
