About this Unit
From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301307 - Creative Digital: Robots and Avatars. This is a personalised project-based learning unit that assists students to creatively bring together their skills learned in previous units (e.g. Graphics and Visualisation stream in Industrial Design). It introduces students to current problem solving in professional practice that negotiates between physical and digital relations (e.g. a robot and its avatar) and assists them to develop a professional portfolio show piece for the time they look for a job in the industry. Learning by experimentation, the unit links traditional skillsets (e.g. software, 3D printing) with new forms of design (e.g. digital design and engineering narratives within augmented and virtual environments).

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Online work safety module must have been completed prior to workshop space use. Specific requirements regarding machine use may require student safety inductions per apparatus i.e. drill, sander.
