IDES 221 - Studio 2: Techniques

3 credits
This studio assists the student to acquire essential two-dimensional representational skills to support the process of design, including production and presentation. It is taught in a collaborative manner, with the instructors conducting projects individually or as a team in order to provide focused instruction and integrated experiences over a wide range of subjects, including the tools, processes, and languages of conceptual drawing, rendering, and detailing using both the computer and traditional media as means to assist design and control production. Principles of technical specification and machine control are introduced as are concepts such as rapid photocopying, computer-integrated manufacturing, parts reduction through integration, and other techniques for efficient production. Students learn to apply these techniques to design problems addressed in IDES 201: Projects Studio.
