The purpose of this module is to have students define a design problem and then solve it through the application of rigorous research, critical thinking and technical development. Students will create two deliverables, a prototype and a design document.
They are required to develop the prototype into a completed project and to write a document critically justifying their approach and the methodology taken. The exact subject material for the project is self-determined but the module content will embrace; visual and verbal preparation of design proposals, research and investigation; assessment of goals, audience, content and design requirements; prototype development and evaluation.
