Weekly for 2 hour sessions.

Requirements of Entry


Excluded Courses





Students will develop an independent project that assesses application of 3D modelling in response to a brief.

Course Aims

This course will develop students' understanding and application of core theories, principles and concepts relating to 3D modelling and computer-aided draughting. 


This course enables students to have the knowledge to meet the GTCS Standard for Provisional Registration as follows:


2.1.1 Have knowledge and understanding of the nature of the curriculum and its development

2.1.2 Have knowledge and understanding of the relevant area(s) of pre-school, primary or secondary curriculum

3.1.1 Plan coherent, progressive and stimulating teaching programmes which match learners' needs and abilities

3.1.2 Communicate effectively and interact productively with learners, individually and collectively

3.1.3 Employ a range of teaching strategies and resources to meet the needs and abilities of learners


The course will also develop the following graduate attributes: Subject Specialists; Investigative; Independent and Critical Thinkers; Resourceful and Responsible; Confident; Adaptable.

Intended Learning Outcomes of Course

By the end of this course students will be able to:


■ Demonstrate understanding of core theories, principles and concepts relating to 3D modelling and computer aided draughting.

■ Demonstrate understanding of a range of modelling operations and how they can be applied to generate models in response to a brief.

■ Develop a 3D modelling plan in response to a brief.

■ Understand and apply strategic modelling to justify approaches to modelling components, parts and assemblies.

■ Generate a multipart model is response to a brief and render it for presentation.

■ Apply British Standards and recognised conventions to graphic products.

■ Demonstrate written communication that is accurate and reliable with respect to 3D modelling.

■ Reflect on the processes of 3D modelling with reference to the core theories, principles and concepts.
