Description

The overall aim of this module is to introduce students’ to the design process and to equip them with the foundation skills needed to produce 3D CAD models and 2D detailed drawings of projects, typically encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Demonstrate an understanding of the design process and employ recognised design techniques.

2.

Produce freehand sketches, orthographic and pictorial of projects in the wood manufacturing and construction industry

3.

Demonstrate design solutions through the use of solid modelling CAD system to create 3D models and fully dimensioned detail drawings of products encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry.

4.

Understand material and process selection impose on the designed project

5.

Demonstrate an understanding of the management process of a design project encountered in the wood manufacturing and construction industry from commencement to completion.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

In addition to the normal CAD lectures and practical classes, Designers Practitioners working in industry will be invited as guest lecturers and site visits to companies will be arranged, where possible.

Module Assessment Strategies

100% continuous assessment will involve the assessment of all assignments undertaken in class, design project activity completed independently.

Repeat Assessments

Repeat Continuous assessment
