About this Unit
This unit provides an overview to the process of design and introduces students to many of the skills they will develop as they become successful industrial designers. Whilst learning about the CDIO framework for project-based design problems, students will develop their applied mathematical skills, learn about materials, be introduced to computer visualisation, work individually and in teams, and develop professional communication skills. The key objective is to provide students with practically-oriented skills and knowledge that enables them to critically analyse existing designs and conceive higher levels of innovation in new designs. Utilising a mix of theory and practice, this unit will challenge students to think both creatively and quantitatively when problem solving during the design process.
