Syllabus

Freehand Sketching

Students will see freehand sketching as an effective process for explaining and solving various problems and also as a method of communicating various ideas. Students should be encouraged to develop their freehand techniques with particular attention being paid to the development and exploration of various problems and descriptive geometries. They must also be able to display light and colour effectively in their sketches and perceive freehand sketching as the  most effective way of expressing an idea or concept.

Orthographic Projection

This is the ability to represent three dimensional objects in a series of structured logical arrangements in a two dimensional form. The students will develop and enhance their understanding for the planes of reference in relation to the three dimensional object. Students are required to have a thorough understanding of the relationship in order to correctly satisfy various requirements. The first angle projection system will be used throughout this course.

SolidWorks

The students will be introduced to the basics regarding Computer Aided Design (CAD) modelling in order to exploit computer technology, which is a powerful and versatile tool for the rapid solution of problems and the communication and presentation of design ideas. This gives the students the parameters to design virtually anything they wish once they have developed a competent level of knowledge with the CAD package.
