Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content
This paper presents students with the challenge of designing different types of simple industrially manufactured projects. The students are challenged to experiment beyond their previously acquired knowledge, designing and prototyping for small scale manufacturing.

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is taught through a series of lectures and studios and it relies on Moodle for the communication with the students.

Class attendance and active participation are expected. The course notes provided are not comprehensive, additional material will be covered in class. Students are responsible for all content covered in class.

Students are expected to devote much time to practical work. Just turning in the first attempt at each practical is not acceptable. Students should experiment with the concepts discussed in class to gain a full understanding of the delivered material.

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

Sketching skills

Demonstrate an understanding of form through the use of hand drawing techniques. Use elevation, perspective and surface finish to explore an object's volume.

Prototyping for function & form

Demonstrate an understanding of form / function & basic ergonomics through the use of quick prototyping and modelling techniques.

Applied design skills

Demonstrate how to convert 2D surfaces into 3D objects through the use of sketching and hand modelling techniques. Output is to be suitable for prototyping.

Students will need to demonstrate research skills, appreciation of target market, creative direction and an understanding of minimalism, beauty and simplicity. In addition, they are 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.

Human-centred design

Students will research and investigate how people, cultures and societies engage with their environment. Students will then propose solutions based on the observations. Hand drawing and prototyping techniques will then be used culminate in a mock ups and presentations that demonstrate an understanding of relevant ergonomics, materials and processes.
