Overview

This course provides an introduction to the foundational activities related to design thinking: a flexible, yet systematic process to define and solve problems. A common misconception is that design thinking requires artistry, but it is not centered on artistic principles. Design thinking is a strategy and mindset that can be applied to any industry to solve problems.

This course is part of a MicroMasters® Program

As part of the Design Thinking MicroMasters Program and offered by EdX in partnership with Rochester Institute of Technology - RITx, the Design Thinking Fundamentals Certificate will explore methods used to evaluate problems, develop ideas, and create innovative solutions with the user in mind. 

Focusing on the importance of user understanding and the development of desirable, feasible, and viable ideas, this course will provide an overview of the design thinking process from end to end.
