Academic Year: 2019/20
Semester: SEM2
Originating Department: Architecture and Design
Pre-requisites: N/A
This module aims to engage student s in a real-life project with industry. partners or communities of interest . A sufficient number (and suitable quality) of local, regional or international industry clients is identified and engaged for this purpose by Industrial Design teaching staff on a year-by-year basis. The module aims to expose students to the opportunities and constraints of real-life design culture/ context projects, as well as to the professional demands and ethical standards of their profession.
Learning outcomes 
A. Apply and integrate knowledge from engineering and non-engineering disciplines to support design

B. Assess an engineering problem and identify constraints, expressing as a design brief.

C. Use creativity to establish innovative engineering design solutions, justifying the selection of ideas.

D. Plan and execute practical and/or simulation tests of design solutions and present reports containing analysis and discussion.

E. Apply engineering design techniques, taking account of a selection of commercial and industrial constraints.

F. Write, structure and present technical reports and specifications

Method of teaching and learning 
This is a studio module. Under tutorial supervision, and enhanced by lectures and other inputs of industrial collaborators and academic staff, student groups work together to address a design brief that raises creative challenges.Students are required to engage in original research and design processes, and to present their developing design work in design reviews to clients or communities of involvement, soliciting feedback on their proposals. Students are expected to conduct their own design fieldwork, analysis, research into relevant technologies, materials,and information. The level of quality achieved in the groups' design outcomes is as important as demonstrably creative, rigorous and self-critical design development processes. Each one of three client presentations is assessed, with the client supporting the assessment of each presentation in an advisory role from an industry perspective.
Working to a brief that outlines a design challenge which is formulated jointly with a community of involvement and teaching staff, groups of typically 5 to 5 students conduct a design development in a design studio format, delivering an early conceptual exploration presentation, an interim presentation and a final product proposal presentation to the community of involvement. Students are expected to address feedback provided by partnerscommunity members appropriately, to demonstrate professionalism throughout this studio module and to recognise the practicalities involved in live project design including design aesthetics, communication, business and marketing aspects as well as timing and manufacturing constraints.
