So you want to graduate

Curious to know what it's like to be in fourth year? Wait no longer! It’s Hell. Please disregard the blur and smiling faces.

I’m kidding (mostly), but you should come see for yourself.

Fourth years are in the midst of user testing and WE WANT YOU to come help us out. Check out our projects, our test rigs, and tell us what you really think. Maybe you will get an idea of what type of project you'd like to work on in the future.

Friday @ 5pm in the Pit or Wednesday @ 12 noon around studio. Questions? Come find Kim Thomson in the 4th yr studio.

More specific information of what we’re actually up to after the jump.

This year we are structured into 6 project groups: OMNR (Firefighters), Entrepreneur, Paralympics, Blue Sky (Futuristic/conceptual), SMART Technologies, and Teknion.

Last semester was spend figuring out what problem areas exist and what products we hope to create to meet these needs and wants. We did a ton of research and by December we had some great presentations and concepts as a result.

This semester is more about user testing and finalizing the design. In other words, more research, model making, technical drawing, form and aesthetics, UI design and much much more.

So come check it out!
