Axiomatic design theory was once considered the domain of engineering doctoral candidates and industry experts in search of an improved understanding of design. However, an innovative freshman design course at KAIST is using Axiomatic Design Theory, along with traditional product design and TRIZ, to improve the students’ ability to think independently, consciously, rationally, and synthetically. This paper discusses the basic format, goals, and philosophy for ED100: Introduction to Design and Communication. Finally, the successes, challenges, and the future implications of the course are also discussed.
