Application procedureYou apply via OSIRIS Student
Registration using OSIRISYes
After passing the course, the student can:
  1. execute a realistic design case based on a design brief where basic drawing skills are used as a designtool
  2. use the basic drawingskills (construction, perspective, toning, distinctness of materials, ability to create dynamic sketchlines) on a sketch tablet with associated software 
  3. integrate four different basic techniques (creative brainstorming, using a CAD-model, using a foam model and integrating scenario's) in the phases of the design process
  4. communicate the design process with the client, teacher, student assistents and with fellow students via a digital community.

This is a part of Module 4 of the Bachelor Industrial Design Engineering. See here for the compete description of this module.

The basic drawing skills of Design Sketching 1 & 2 are congregated in Design Sketching 3, where the students have to perform an assignment which is completely executed on a sketch tablet with the associated software. The course is divided in two parts:
The first part focuses on the application of the basic drawing skills (perspective, construction, toning, distinctness of materials, ability to create dynamic sketch lines etc) on a sketch tablet. Furthermore the students learn to become familiar with the sketch tablet and the associated software. The second part aims to use the newly developed skills of digital sketching as a design tool in the design process. In the course the students are working with realistic cases from business, where they have to (re)design a product within five weeks based on a design brief. In the design process the students have to integrate four basic techniques (creative brainstorming, using CAD models, using a foam model and integrating scenario’s). During the course a digital community is used to discuss the work with clients, teachers, colleagues and student assistants.
