Overview of class

Design Thinking and Communication (DTC) is Segal's two-quarter, foundational design course, serving students from all engineering majors.

In DTC's first quarter, most projects involve solving problems for people with special needs, such as rehabilitation. In the second quarter, projects address a variety of problems like healthcare, industry, and education.

DTC is team-taught by faculty from McCormick and Northwestern's Writing Program. The course is listed under Design and English; as you study design, you also fulfill McCormick's writing requirement.
