About this course

Join me as I walk you through every step it takes to become a master at using the engineering design process to tackle your robotics projects. From developing your project goals to building and testing a prototype, this class will provide you with the tools it takes to complete your robotic project.


In this efficient crash course, I share my structured and simplified approach to the engineering design process specific to creating a robotics prototype from home. Follow along with me as I use the engineering design process to complete my own robotic camera phone slider.


This course includes 19 video lessons, PDF worksheets, spreadsheets, and a detailed list of resources. Also included in this course is access to contact me directly with questions regarding this course, your own project, or how to develop your own project-based engineering curriculum.

Brandon Tsuge



I'm an engineer and educator with a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering from the University of California, Irvine. I've done quite a bit of work developing undergraduate, project-based learning courses and outreach competitions for university, high school, and middle school students. I've also worked in the medical device and accident reconstruction industries.

DIY Robotics and the Engineering Design Process was inspired by my passion for robotics and engineering.
