INV 180 - Create: Innovation Engineering

No INV courses will be offered Spring 2014, stay tuned for Fall 2014!

This course will provide a systematic approach to creativity, the foundation for students to understand how to generate innovative ideas in any field.  The course gives students the theories behind and practice using tools to generate meaningfully unique ideas.  These tools engage creative stimulus, diversity and mining for technology and economic, social and cultural trends.  The course will examine case histories that demonstrate how social and cultural contexts and human institutions have been influenced by innovative individuals who have realized original ideas in practice.
