*NEW* HALF-SESSION COURSE STARTING OCT. 17 | Design Thinking for Women's Health & Well-being– TE 401 D
Students will use design thinking and creativity to explore the intersection of technology and social issues, including explorations into a variety of women's health and well-being issues such as reproductive rights, aging and menopause, and equity. Students will develop content knowledge, have hands-on experiences, and gain a sense of belonging and identity as entrepreneurs by discovering a problem and developing a concept idea.

Introduction to Design Thinking – TE 401 DT
Introduction to Design Thinking, developed by Siebel Center for Design, will provide guidance to students in learning and building competency in the design thinking process. Students in this course will work in groups to participate in the design thinking process in order to develop innovative outcomes. Have an idea? We can help you refine it through the principles of design thinking. Looking for an idea? We can walk you through the design thinking process to search for opportunity areas and help you identify specific concept directions to further explore. Email designcenter@illinois.edu for more information.

Design Thinking for Health – TE 401 DTH
Design Thinking for Health, developed by Siebel Center for Design, will provide guidance to students in learning and building competency in the design thinking process. Projects within this section will focus on identifying need and opportunity within the spectrum of healthcare. Students will work in groups to participate in the design thinking process in order to develop innovative outcomes. Email designcenter@illinois.edu for more information.

Design Thinking for Social Innovation – TE 401 DTS
Design Thinking for Social Innovation, developed by Siebel Center for Design, tackles social needs and issues through an immersive exploration of design thinking. Social innovation seeks to create transformational change in underserved, underrepresented, and disadvantaged communities at the local to international levels. We know that many social issues are often too complex to be solved by using traditional methods. Understanding that these are vast, difficult, and overwhelming, and social problems like poverty, homelessness, hunger, clean water, and violence are just a small sliver of the issues our society faces. Students in this course will work in groups to participate in the design thinking process in order to develop innovative outcomes. Email designcenter@illinois.edu for more information.

Augmented Listening Technology – TE 401 F
Recent advances in embedded sensing and computing technology and in audio signal processing are enabling groundbreaking advances in augmented listening technology, including hearing aids, smart headphones, and audio augmented reality. In this project-based experiential course, students will develop prototypes, design experiments, and collect data to explore the capabilities of multichannel augmented listening devices using large sensor arrays and state-of-the-art signal processing methods. The collaborative project will incorporate electronic hardware design, laboratory experiments, and data analysis. Students will also have the opportunity to pursue individual research into applications related to audio enhancement, array processing, and machine audition. TE 401 F Website
