In Product Dissection, students work in teams to dissect several common products to discover their internal functions and to critique their design, manufacturing methods, materials selection, and potential for recycling. Lecture and discussion topics include the design process, material selection, introduction to manufacturing processes, basic mechanical and electrical components and measurements, green design, and human factors. Dissection projects include a bicycle, several appliances, and an internal combustion engine.
