ENGG 523 - Bio-inspired Design - Winter 2021

This course explores the principles and systems behind evolved natural constructions and processes, and transferring these to device and system design: abstractions of functional morphologies lead to new technical concepts and prototypes. Topics in this course may include: design by analogy, functional morphology, principles and techniques of biomimicry, bio-inspired design methods, technical sketching, bio-inspired computation and modelling, and biomimetic concepts such as self healing, growth, and self-organization.
This course may not be repeated for credit.
