About this Unit
This unit equips students with the fundamental skills that will enable them to use creative design and engineering approaches to solve challenging problems and to understand the design process. Students will be exposed to 2D and 3D visualisation techniques, will learn how to interpret abstract information, and will work on practical projects in an interdisciplinary context. The aim is to provide a common first-year subject that is thematic, rather than discipline-centred and presents students with foundation concepts in engineering and industrial design.
