The main purpose of the Capstone Project is for the students to learn the application of the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course of the programme to a real life issue involving actual data in a realistic setting. During the phase of the project, students are mentored to go through the entire process of finding a solution to a real-world urban issue.
The proposed course deals with interfacing, designing and programming various gadgets with the help of Arduino and its species. Students will learn basic programming and electronics used in for smart Automated Products which are very much needful from the design perspective. In this majority of things will be hand on e.g. circuit making on breadboard, soldering, programming, debugging and simulations. The course includes digital I/O, analog I/O, sensor interfacing, actuator interfacing, and electro-mechanical measurements. Students are require to download Tinkercad from Autodesk (open Source) and join my class Using Class ID which I will provide. (For learning online) . At the end of the course students will be asked to design a 100% fully functional project based on UX/UI, interaction design, electronic product design, robotics and many more.
A good technical presentation of design is must to make someone understand the design.This course imparts skills related to the preparation of drawings meant for execution of work at a residential site.Necessity & understanding of working drawings, suitable drawing scales, standards of preparation of plans, sections, elevations & details, methods of showing dimensions. Details of all interior space making and functional elements with specifications & details for loose furniture, false ceilings, partitions & paneling, etc and of spaces like kitchens, bathrooms, toilets etc incorporating material, hardware, fixtures, fittings, colour, texture and standards from industry. Initiating and maintaining a material library of materials used in residential interior space,i.e plywood, glass, steel, hardware, sanitary ware, finishes, stone etc.
Neighbourhoods of a city form the smallest unit of a city. A typical neighbourhood comprises of various landuses and related activities. Though similar every neighbourhood is unique in its own sense in terms of the juxtaposition of buildings and the resultant human activities. In addition how the inside of the building is used, in an urban context, what happens between the buildings is more important. The public realm is what gives every neighbourhood its uniqueness and its soul.
The aim of this studio would be to enable students:
- How to become of the aware of the tools for mapping and visual representation of an urban area necessary to begin a creative exploration and critical evaluation and to be able to discuss possible design solutions.
- To learn how to experience the public realm through observation, to explore the intellectual, usability and aesthetic content of various elements that define a public area.
- To gain fluency in the skills involved in urban mapping, using a range of media that include free-hand and observational drawing, scaled and measured drawing, drawing by computer, physical model-making, and photography. And also to learn which tools to use where.
This studio prepares the student to understand and address the challenges of designing a large Office space that includes different types and scales of activities. The aim is to provide skills for designing medium to larger scale office projects with emphasis on space making, elements of enclosure, and creating efficient and innovative workplace environments. Learning about and incorporating interior services like HVAC, lighting, electrical power, fire safety, security, statutory codes, etc. which play an important role in establishing efficiency, safety and aesthetics of an office. It also looks at specific challenges faced in work-place design - fostering a work culture, productivity, occupant health and well-being, etc.
The course on Project Formulation and Finance focuses upon the identification, formulation, and design stages of an infrastructure development project cycle. It provides emphasis and guidance regarding setting project objectives and reviewing alternative approaches to solve a given development problem. It understands and emphasizes the involvement of multiple stakeholders from the outset of project identification. The program thoroughly explores the inner and outer dimensions involved in the working of project logistics, constraints, risks, execution and management necessary to deliver projects within the expected scope. The course aims at developing a logical framework which can be employed as a tool for project formulation, evaluation, financing, appraisal and management.
The course is aimed towards providing substantial foundation and background for urban development project finance. The students would receive a practical and indepth understanding of several urban development projects through lectures, activities, case studies, financial modelling and guest lectures. Students will be introduced to several key financial terms and would gain an understanding of the financial rewards generated from several projects. They will also be able to prepare project financial statements
The course provides the students with design skills to generate newer form ideas, using the Principles of
Design. The focus is to study this through 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional form manipulations in various
The course lays foundation in the development of abstract forms and
appreciation of the forms in product development process.
The focus of this course is to teach students CAD software like Fusion 360. Students will explore and
expand their design experiences by various 3D composition exercises at the same time analyzing the
same. This course will help them to execute their ideas into digital CAD format. Few advance tools like
rendering can also explored under this course structure.
