Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
(1) Master form giving and aesthetical design to be able to produce and manufacture physical design prototypes with high standards
(2) Understand the benefit of physical design prototype in comparison with digital design concept
(3) Estimate the resources needed for physical prototyping in product development

CONTENT, ASSESSMENT AND WORKLOAD
Students get to experiment with and perfect their skills with a range of physical materials and they get to know material workshop/studio practices to be able to explore and develop the form giving of physical products. The course contains the required workshop "driving license(s)", material workshops including related studio practices and prototyping. The students work in design studio mode and utilise different material workshops related to their design assignments under the super vision of the instructor(s).
Assessment Methods and Criteria
After successfully completing this course students should be able to master physical prototypes with high standards. Evaluation criteria: process, participation, concept development, design/aesthetics, prototype, general evaluation.
