Learning Outcomes

1. Apply the design process to plan and produce mock-ups that develop solutions to problems of a 3 dimensional nature.
2. Construct 3 dimensional objects to demonstrate the appropriate use of the elements and principles of design
3. Use appropriate materials, tools and equipment safely for the basic construction of models
4. Conduct a critical analysis of 3 dimensional designs

Overview of Assessment

Students will demonstrate competence by completing a series of practical projects to be submitted by the prescribed deadlines. All project work is to be documented through notes and drawings which may consist of: notes from lectures and tutorials, models, mockups, visual presentations, and research conducted relevant to the project. Ongoing verbal feedback will be provided to students as the projects progress. Written assessment and feedback will be given to the student when work is returned. Late work will not be accepted.
