Unit description

Focused on the efficient management of design projects and the various stages of their development and realisation to complement the drawing skills developed in the Design Thinking and Communication.   This unit will introduce design management, communication and realisation concepts, knowledge and skills that are associated with effective and safe project management.  Students will develop entrepreneurial mindsets and learn about industry practices such as drafting through the development of formal design documentation using industry standard software, and the safe use of digital tools for the manufacture of prototypes to explore opportunities.

Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1apply recent theory and practice related to principles and processes of design and production, and associated industries
2understand processes of design and production for developing design ideas, producing solutions, documenting, communicating and presenting evidence of the application of design thinking to project development
3read, interpret and produce drawings using plane, solid and surface geometry to design and create complex projects using contemporary graphics techniques utilising Australian Standards (AS1100) including the use of CAD or 3D modelling programs
4select and use a range of materials, tools and equipment such as CAM to safely realize the development of products as solutions to design needs and/or opportunities.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

  1. apply recent theory and practice related to principles and processes of design and production, and associated industries
  2. understand processes of design and production for developing design ideas, producing solutions, documenting, communicating and presenting evidence of the application of design thinking to project development
  3. read, interpret and produce drawings using plane, solid and surface geometry to design and create complex projects using contemporary graphics techniques utilising Australian Standards (AS1100) including the use of CAD or 3D modelling programs
  4. select and use a range of materials, tools and equipment such as CAM to safely realize the development of products as solutions to design needs and/or opportunities.
