APDZ 335 Introduction to Computational Design

5 credits
Computational design emphasizes the use of pre-established rules or parameters to generate multiple designs. The designer learns to critically assess each design and determine which designs meet the desired idea or concept. This course provides a survey of the discipline of computational design as it relates to theory and application.

Prerequisites: Admission to BTAD program or instructor permission, HUM 311  or HUM 312 recommended.
Quarters Offered: Fall

Student Outcomes/Competencies:
Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:

  • Apply new design processes to common design problems
  • Evaluate computational design theories to solve design problems
  • Construct rules that will create emergent designs
  • Create dynamic objects from relationships and gathered research
  • Create designs that demonstrate well organized geometries, patterns, and mutations (variations)
  • Demonstrate critical thinking through self-assessment of outcomes from exercises and projects
  • Develop an independent project showcasing computational design principles
