Teaching for the paper will involve both live and pre-recorded discussions of topics, as well as in-lab discussion including critique sessions. The primary source of information regarding the paper will be Moodle, where links to content and written documentation will be supplied for reference. Physical lab space is allocated including access to machines with the necessary software installed. Three-dimensional printing facilities are also provided for the student for completing assignment work.

Note: In the event that students are prevented from physically attending any “In-Class” or “In-Lab” sessions, video conferencing technologies such as Zoom will be utilized instead; details for using these technologies will be made available via Moodle and through email contact with the paper convener. Where synchronous contact is not available, then students will be encouraged to submit video evidence of performance of assessment; please contact the convener to discuss.

Learning Outcomes

Edit Learning Outcomes Content

Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:

  • Demonstrate detailed knowledge of an existing design
    Students will be able to express information about a designed object including the aspects of the design process involved, production considerations, and critical response.
    Linked to the following assessments:
  • 3D modeling software skills
    Students will be able to demonstrate basic skills in the operation of 3D modeling software for the purpose of industrial design, including effectively navigating the software interface, creating geometry, and preparing files for output as both images and 3D printed output.
    Linked to the following assessments:
  • Design skills
    Students will be able to demonstrate skills in creating work suitable for presentation, through the application of design process. In addition, students will be expected to engage in critical reflection and constructive criticism of both their own work and that of their peers as part of the design process.
