Content
This unit offers projects that develop and test integrated design concepts and promote competences in vocabularies and analysis and focus on the practical application of design. Studio programs support the development of ‘making' skills in moderately complicated environments which require integration of analytical, representational and ‘making' skills in a project resolved to a moderate level of complexity.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) conceptualise solutions to integrated design problems of basic complexity, invent solutions to simple modular problems, and invent solutions to simple component manufacture; (2) develop a basic understanding of the behaviour of different materials in an industrial production context, the performance characteristics of commonly available materials in Western Australia (WA), and the properties of commonly available materials in WA; and (3) develop an understanding of the design team environment, the functioning of a task-orientated group, concepts of sustainability in industrial production, sustainability of different materials, and embedded energy values of different materials and processes of production.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) project 1 and (2) folio. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is available in this unit for those students who obtain a mark of at least 45 overall provided they have also obtained a mark of at least 45 in a specified component of the unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit, one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook one week prior the commencement of study. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Information on essential textbooks will also be made available on the Essential Textbooks. This website is updated regularly in the lead up to semester so content may change. It is recommended that students purchase essential textbooks for convenience due to the frequency with which they will be required during the unit. A limited number of textbooks will be made available from the Library in print and will also be made available online wherever possible. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus.
