In this course, students will apply both manual and computer applications to communicate and represent ideas and technical drawing systems. “Sketching” will be freehand drawing and “Drawing” will be done through using drawing instruments, from compasses to computers tool to bring greater precision to the drawings. Plain ideas can be translated into appealing and communicative visual images. Observational and conceptual drawing skills will be developed and enhanced to allow students to effectively convey different concepts. Students will also upskill their current skill sets to include computer-aided design (CAD) and development.
This course is a platform through which students can demonstrate their creativity and imagination through experimenting and exploring with different tools as well as communicating their ideas with their peers.
