About this Unit
From 2020, this unit will be replaced by 301289 - Design Semantics: Exploring Product Form.      Students will undertake projects with semi-open briefs, where they are asked to address a given theme and achieve specific outcomes such as sustainability criteria or costing targets. They will follow the CDIO (Conceive, Design, Implement, Operate) framework to develop designs to the stage of working prototypes with a clear plan of how the product will work in a real setting. This will include making a digital and/or mechanical representation, and also mapping how the product meets functional requirements both as a prototype and in the longer term as a finished product.

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.
