Thesis II: Business Validation to Final Presentation
1.00 Credit(s)
Prerequisite: INDS 4C01 Thesis I: Planning to Direction Definition (minimum grade of 60%)
Continuing from Thesis I, students begin Thesis II by exposing their design development to a business validation process (stage 1). Real world feedback gained from the business validation process will inform stage 2 (concept development) where students' ideas are matured and developed and then finalized in Stage 3, (final experience testing, interaction specifications, renderings, models and product/service definitions). At the end of the semester, concepts will be finalized and prepared for presentation for the end of term exposition.
Notes: Due to course content, it is required that students register with the SAME INSTRUCTORS for INDS 4C01 and INDS 4C02 and both courses must be taken in the same academic year.
Thesis and thesis preparation courses are under review.
Conditions: Students must achieve a minimum grade of 60% in this course as a condition for graduating.
Should a student be unsuccessful in attaining a 60% average in INDS 4C02, they will be required, regardless of their mark in INDS 4C01 to repeat the fall component of Thesis, INDS 4C01, as well as the winter component of Thesis, INDS 4C02.
