Description

The Texas A&M Design Process course has 160 honors students from every major on campus working individually and in trans-disciplinary teams to create knowledge. While most university courses focus on what is and what has been, this course focuses on what can be: the students enter international social entrepreneurship competitions, national competitions, and create new products, services and businesses.

Future focus is crucial for them to understand unintended consequences and game changers that will create the future. Several businesses have been formed from class projects, multiple competitions have been won, and some former students have gone on Kickstarter and received six figures backing for their ideas. Some students have even been able to pay for their university education with business they formed in class, and by licensing their inventions and innovations to major corporations. The course is meant to empower the students to invent their future and discover their own creativity - because the Design Process is Trans-Disciplinary.
