Course details

This degree aims to provide learners with the essential communication skills to visually interpret industry-related spatial design projects of both internal and external spaces. Learners will develop critical analysis and independent thinking to project management competences to transform three-dimensional volumes into innovative spatial experiences. They will explore innovative constructional materials and technology to develop their projects, with attention to sustainability and environment, considering also light effects in the design brief.
Learners will also learn how to generate technical drawing skills and artistic visuals using CAD software to communicate concepts and details in a realistic manner, as well as develop model-making skills.
At the end of the course, Learners will have built a portfolio of work which will serve them well for work opportunities.

Din id-degree għandha l-għan li tipprovdi lill-istudenti l-ħiliet essenzjali tal-komunikazzjoni biex jinterpretaw b’mod viżiv il-proġetti tad-disinn spazjali relatati mal-industrija ta’ spazji kemm interni kif ukoll esterni. L-istudenti jiżviluppaw analiżi kritika u ħsieb indipendenti fir-rigward tal-kompetenzi għall-immaniġġjar tal-proġetti biex jittrasformaw volumi tridimensjonali f’esperjenzi spazjali innovattivi. Huma se jesploraw materjali u teknoloġija ta’ kostruzzjoni innovattivi biex jiżviluppaw il-proġetti tagħhom, b’attenzjoni għas-sostenibbiltà u l-ambjent, filwaqt li jikkunsidraw ukoll effetti tad-dawl fid-design brief.
L-istudenti jitgħallmu wkoll kif jiżviluppaw ħiliet ta’ tpinġija teknika u stampi artistiċi bl-użu tas-softwer CAD biex jikkomunikaw kunċetti u dettalji b’mod realistiku, kif ukoll jiżviluppaw ħiliet tal-bini ta’ mudelli.
Fl-aħħar tal-kors, l-istudenti jkunu bnew portafoll ta’ xogħlijiet li jkun ta’ benefiċċju għall-opportunitajiet ta’ impjieg.
