Students apply theories, skills and techniques to resolve complex 2-D design problems. Emphasis is placed on exploring shape, composition, aesthetics, cultural context, materials, processes and systems, while addressing social responsibility and environmental stewardship.


Prerequisite: DES2035: 2-D Design 2

Students apply theories, skills and techniques appropriate to 3-D design. Students will deal with such aspects as shaping, massing, proportion, scale, contrast, colour, texture and finish within the context of complex 3-D design projects. Students are introduced to cultural, symbolic and human factors, principles and ergonomic considerations.


Prerequisite: DES2045: 3-D Design 2

Students solve design problem(s) using advanced computer-aided design (CAD) methods, advanced commands, 2-D and/or 3-D modelling techniques, rendering, shading, and animation techniques.


Prerequisite: DES2055: CAD 2

Students develop complex explanatory drawings for civil, mechanical, structural or electrical systems. This is a skill-building course with an emphasis on explanatory line drawings suitable for presentation and assembly.

Prerequisites: DES2055: CAD 2 or DES2075: Technical Drafting 2

Students explore new possibilities in design, including the role of the designer and the challenges that are faced by designers.
