  • ATLS 2002 - Design Technologies: Process
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Introduces foundational principles, practices and methods relating to the process of creative design. Emphasis on the pre-production process as a creative problem-solving tool in order to produce innovative and interesting creative work. Through lectures, discussion and creative projects, students will gain a familiarity with diverse applications and practices related to creative technology and design
  • ATLS 3300 - Object: Introduction to Physical Computing
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Introduces the fundamentals of physical computing. This class is an exploration of computing that starts from the perspective that humans are fundamentally physical beings. Students will design projects that interact with humans and the physical world and will learn to integrate sensors, motors, and simple electronics into creative projects. Projects will include interactive installations, art projects, games, and audio controllers.
  • ATLS 3519 - Special Topics in Technology, Arts, and Media
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Analyzes special interest areas of multidisciplinary technology, arts and media research and practice. May be repeated up to 21 total credit hours for different topics.
  • ATLS 4519 - Advanced Special Topics in Technology, Arts, and Media
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Analyzes special interest areas of multidisciplinary technology, arts and media research and practice. May be repeated up to 32 total credit hours.
  • ATLS 5519 - Advanced Special Topics in Technology, Arts, and Media
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Analyzes special interest areas of multidisciplinary technology, arts and media research and practice. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours for different topics.
  • CSCI 4830 - Special Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Covers topics of interest in computer science at the senior undergraduate level. Content varies from semester to semester. Only 9 credit hours from CSCI 4830 and/or CSCI 4831 can count toward Computer Science BS or BA.
  • CSCI 7000 - Current Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Covers research topics of current interest in computer science that do not fall into a standard subarea. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
  • ENVD 1010 - Studio 1: Introduction to Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019 / Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
    The first of four introductory studios introduces students to concepts and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale. In an immersive project-based studio environment students develop the foundation of design communication and thinking through a series of hands-on projects with physical outcomes.
  • ENVD 1110 - Studio 2: Fundamentals of Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Building on the foundation introduced in EPoD Studio 1, this studio introduces students to more advanced methodologies and techniques related to the design of products at a human scale while considering the interdisciplinary nature of the other specializations. Using complementary skills in 3D modeling, drawing, diagramming, and through physical making and fabrication, students explore imaginative and innovative design solutions of small-scale products.
  • ENVD 4352 - Special Topics: Computer Methods
    Primary Instructor - Summer 2020 / Fall 2020
    Topics include animation and environmental simulation, computational methods of technical evaluation and optimization, and computational mapping and analysis. May be repeated for credit by petition.
  • ENVD 4979 - Honors Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Working with an advisor, students prepare, complete, and defend an honors thesis project, either written or creative.
  • EPOD 3105 - Applied Design Thinking and Entrepreneurship for Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    Exposes students to innovation and entrepreneurial practices around the topic of Environmental Products of Design through applied design thinking.
  • EPOD 4100 - Studio 3: Capstone in Environmental Products of Design
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    Expanding on the design research presented in the Capstone Proposal course, students fully develop and build an innovative prototype of their design solution.
