Design Computing Research: Introduction


Design Computing Research is the first concentration course in the Design Computing track of the Bachelor of Design Studies. While all students will have had some training in previous courses (as well as in practice) with specific design computing technologies, this course is intended to look at design computing technology as a whole field. Design Computing Research introduces students to the range of ways that computing facilitates the practice of physical environment design: the conceptualization and creation of the buildings and spaces in which we live, work and play. The course is broken into two segments. The first provides a survey of design computing technology, including both hardware and software, and the various applications of this technology in practice. The second segment allows students to explore a particular area of design computing that interests them through a research project spread over 6 weeks, which culminates in a final research paper, along with a presentation
