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 clarified approach to the engineering design process specific to DIY robotics and project-based learning. Follow along with me as I use the engineering design process to complete my own robotic camera phone slider.


With 25 lecture and demonstration videos, a PDF workbook, and a detailed list of resources, this class will benefit everyone from the first-time hobbyist with no theoretical background, to the experienced engineer.


Your Instructor

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.
