Aim: 
This course will introduce students to basic Product Design drafting conventions through the use of industry-relevant software. This course is designed to enhance student awareness of the role and importance that software and digital fabrication techniques contribute to the design process, development and refinement of products and objects. Students will be exposed to modelling, rendering, object animation and digital fabrication. This course will also provide an introduction to digital communication conventions, using Adobe software to build skills for presentation of design work through photographic manipulation and digital page layout.
