    Product Design presents an in-depth study of structured design processes and methods. Its fundamental approach is that of reverse engineering and teardowns, which present a new paradigm for design instruction. This permits a modern learning cycle of experience, hypothesis, understanding, and then execution. Otto and wood bring students concrete experiences with hands-on products, applications of contemporary technologies, and much more.
