Learning Outcomes


Research, evaluate and support implementation and report on designing and development processes within an industrial context.


Details of Learning Activities

The course is primarily project -based and is largely student-directed. You will be allocated in groups of 2-3 students (number of students may change depend on complexity of the project) and each group will work as a team on a design project based on a given design specification. Each group nominates a group leader and meet the advisor at least once each week. Peer assessment and a progress report at the end of semester form parts of the assessment.

 


Teaching Schedule

 

Student Directed Hours: 17.5 hours. Students are required to work on their project research, assessment (report writing) and project group meetings during their Student Directed Hours.

Project research: 6 hours approx.
Assessment (Report writing): 8 hours approx.
Project group meetings: 3.5 hours approx.
 

 

Please note: While your teacher will cover all the material in this schedule, the weekly teaching and assessment order is subject to change depending on class needs and availability of resources.

Session 1:Introduction to Design Process, Design Organisation and Design Documentation
Session 2: Selection of Design Project
Session 3 to 6: Weekly Design Team meeting with the advisor
Session 8: Progress Report meeting
Session 9 to 12: Weekly Design Team meeting with the advisor
Session 13: Final Design presentation (Project Submission- First Draft)
Session 14: Final Design Presentation
Session 15: Final Design Project Report Submission 
Session 16: Assessment Feedback
Session 17: Finalisation of Assessment
