Ffeithiau’r Modiwl

Rhedir gan School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering

20 Credyd neu 10 Credyd ECTS

Semester 2

Amcanion cyffredinol

Understand the need to prototype and the process of designing one. Provide learners with the skills and tools needed to embody an idea in physical reality. Starting with a palette of digital fabrication techniques, developing ideas with some of the tools of the designer, finishing with a project based in a real context.

Cynnwys cwrs

Indicative content includes:

  • Introduction to design methodology, process and techniques.
  • Converging on an idea and formulating a brief.
  • Prototypes as design tools (looks-like, works-like).
  • Introduction to design software for two and three dimensions.
  • Operating safely in the workshop environment with basic tools.
  • Simple model making: Cardboard Aided Design.
  • Plastic prototypes with 3D printing.
  • Sheet material and the laser cutter.
  • Model making with a CNC mill.
  • Considerations for industrial process.

Meini Prawf

trothwy

Equivalent to 40%. Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence.

da

Equivalent to the range 60%-69%. Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication.

ardderchog

Equivalent to the range 70%+. Assemble critically evaluated, relevent areas of knowledge and theory to constuct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
