Learning outcomes and graduate attributes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

GA1: Intellectual rigour, GA2: Creativity, GA3: Ethical practice, GA4: Knowledge of a discipline, GA5: Lifelong learning, GA6: Communication and social skills, GA7: Cultural competence
GA1 GA2 GA3 GA4 GA5 GA6 GA7
1 discuss the diversity of applications of computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided graphics
2 critically discuss the role of CAD, CAM (including additive and subtractive technologies) and other graphics applications in supporting industries, the economy and its impact on society.
3 demonstrate a diversity of CAD methods, modes, tools, and techniques for 2D and 3D graphic work and manufacturing
4 demonstrate skills in applying CAD techniques to address design briefs in a range of industries
5 demonstrate advanced skills in the use of computer graphics applications in the development of multimedia for communication and presentation.
6 apply design principles and processes to the implementation of CAD and graphics applications to meet a design brief.
7 discuss the application of CAD in computer aided manufacturing (CAM) and emerging technologies, and the legal, ethical and environmental considerations.
