Systems Thinking (online) | Minneapolis College of Art and Design

Systems Thinking (online)

This course provides students with the tools required to succeed in today's dynamic market and a world of uncertainty.

We are transitioning from the age of design for the part to the age of design for the whole. Systems thinking, languages of design, and product life cycles are integrated and they form the solid foundation for innovative products. Actionable theory is absorbed through market­-specific projects.

This is a graduate level class and is part of MCAD's Master of Arts in Sustainable Design.

Open to students ages 18 and above. View complete policies.
