Skip to 0 minutes and 10 seconds Hi iam Suhana, the instructor for this course. This course is on ideation for engineering design. If you are engineering student, or practicing engineer from any engineering background You probably have a need for this course. One of cornerstone for engineering innovation is to find a really good idea to solve. In this course, I will take you to the steps needed to arrive and the really good idea for your engineering design project. This is called the ideation process and I hope that you can join me on this journey.

Ideation: The First Step in Engineering Design
Learn all you need to know about idea development in engineering design
Ideation is the first (and arguably the most important) stage of engineering design.
This three-week course, created by experts at Universiti Malaya, offers an in-depth introduction to the successful development of ideas in engineering design. If you want to ensure you create functional processes and products, this course is for you.
Understand the fundamentals of engineering design
Engineering design is the series of steps that engineers use to develop successful products or operations. Systems thinking and design thinking are both important parts of this overall process.
On this course, you’ll get the chance to explore all aspects of the process, understanding them from design and systems thinking perspectives.
With the comprehensive training materials that unpack all the fundamentals, you’ll gain great insight into engineering design and, ultimately, will be able to excel as an engineer.
Pair creative ideation with effective action
On this course, you’ll learn to use structured methodology to identify problem statements based on user needs, solutions to these statements, and possible obstacles to these solutions. Even ways of dealing with these obstacles.
You’ll also learn how to explore ways of dealing with the obstacles you identify. Not only will you see how the idea development process works, but you’ll discover how to turn your brainstorming sessions into real results too.
Trust Universiti Malaya to deliver an exceptional learning experience
Universiti Malaya is a leading engineering faculty in the Asian region, and the course’s lead educator has years of experience in teaching design thinking and other approaches. With so much expertise and support, this course is the ideal way to explore idea development in engineering design.
