Students will work in teams on a major project divided into three sections supported by a series of briefings and weekly group consultations. A new real design project is presented each year.
The design report produced will include computations and drawings as appropriate. Students will be given guidance in the theory and practice aimed at coordinating the activities involved. The unit involves the development of formal computation and drawing presentation.
