Module code: PD160
Credits: 7.5
Semester: 2
International: Yes
Coordinator: Anthony Cleary (DESIGN INNOVATION)
Overview Overview

In this module students will be required to complete two simple design projects. Students are typically tasked with designing and making simple consumer products suitable for small batch production. They are guided through each design stage through an intensive practical studio and workshop-based course. The chosen products are usually items of gift or homeware and are designed to a specific theme. Students are required to produce among the deliverables, a professional quality presentation board outlining their idea. They are also required to produce a high-quality prototype as close to a final product as possible. The packaging requirements for the product are also addressed. Students will be encouraged to incorporate programs such as Solid works to develop and present their products. Students are encouraged to explore a broad range of materials and manufacturing processes to bring their ideas to life. Students will utilise and further develop visual thinking and presentation skills covered in PD15,

The module aims to encourage familiarity and fluidity in the way students use sketching and sketching notebooks as a designer’s key medium of conceptual expression. It aims to establish a pattern of behaviour in the students that will be encouraged and monitored throughout the full duration of the BSc programme, and that will provide a solid foundation of behavioural practice for entry into professional life.

The module will be split into two six-week projects. One of these will be a group project.
