Module code: DEN126
This module seeks to investigate themes within design and engineering that relate to socio cultural and engineering analysis of "Purpose and Performance". It is intended to introduce students to important aspects of design and engineering as a starting point for the synthesis of ideas and innovations in design and engineering. The briefs set out a framework within which the students generate ideas, rather than being directed toward a conventional design outcome or specialist area. This module will run in parallel with the Context module, and encourage students to engage with and understand the value of discourse within design practice which is an interdisciplinary activity of technical and socio cultural creative thinking.
