  • Purpose and learning objectives

    The subject element deals with digital prototypes with a focus on the use of 3D drawing and 3D rendering (3D reproduction) of products. Initially, the focus is on basic 3D drawing techniques and how to create complex models. Subsequently, the focus will shift to physical 3D printing and solutions drawn in 3D.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about:
    − digital 3D printing.
    − basic digital 3D drawing and rendering programs and associated workflows.

  • Type of instruction
    Teaching and learning methods are adapted to the individual programme elements in order to further the opportunity to develop students' professional competencies in their capacity of Professional Bachelors in Jewellery, Technology and Business and continue in qualifying further education.
    The teaching is organised so that the student will come across various teaching and working methods, the purpose of which is to promote independence, cooperation skills, capacity for reflection and the ability to create professional innovation. Teaching is a mix of lectures, interdisciplinary projects, classroom training, group work, guidance, and independent work as well as problem-orientated tasks. Students work individually and in groups; however, as far as individual learning goes, students are encouraged to set up study groups to support each student in the learning process and problem resolutions.
    The internship involves a combination of theory and practice and a practice-orientated approach to teaching. Many tasks and projects will be developed in collaboration with a company. The teaching is organised in modules, and each module has independent overall learning objectives to ensure continuity in the teaching process.
    The extent of the teaching corresponds to a full-time study. It is important that students are active during their studies and take responsibility for continuous learning.
    When there is no scheduled teaching, students are expected to spend the time preparing. Preparation is the time the individual student or study group spend preparing for the subject/programme. This could be time spent reading notes from a class, watching video-recorded lessons, reading the syllabus, doing group work, doing project work, working in one of KEA's workshops, searching for information, gathering empirical data, portfolio work, assignment work, exercises, attending conferences or exhibitions, etc.
