It is carried out in a course work mode and equal to 7 units (credit hours) per week, duration of 14 weeks of Semester 1 Academic Session 2015/16.

This course exposes students to the basic understanding of elements and principles in designing the built environment with reference of grid. Students will be trained in all basic aspects of design, graphic skills, media of presentations, types of drawings, lettering, sketching, 2D & 3D drawing techniques, complete presentation drawings and model making. This course also trains students to enhance their creativity and perception through design process that involves the development of design concept, the application of design principles and problem-solving approach and thus effective communication of design ideas. By integrating the skills of design with the basic knowledge of structure and services, material, construction methods and simple costing, the multidisciplinary guided students are expected to be able to:

1.    Appreciation as an actor in the built environment
2.    Design objects and sustainable small-scale building from early planning stages right up to the production of presentation drawings with the clear understanding of the contribution of various disciplines in the built environment.
