The goal of this course is to provide students with the ability to make an educated selection of production processes within the design process to obtain desired concept, shape and functional outputs. Students will be introduced to a deeper understanding of common high and low volume manufacturing processes, discover their unique potential and applications, understand the moulds involved, and recognize how the products that surround us in our daily lives are created. Students will actively undertake research into specific areas/applications of processes and create design concepts/research based on the creative exploitation of a process or technique. Prior knowledge of production processes is required.
