WORK EXPERIENCE Industrial Design Elective Sem 2, 2013 Grap 2303 / 2304 / 2305 / 1048 Sem 2, 2013 This student-‐led elective is an opportunity for Industrial Design students to undertake work experience in a host organization. You will work for 72hours or more in an industry, business, community not-‐for-‐profit or government organisation or small design practice to expand your experience in undertaking real design projects of value to the organisation. The course experience focuses on your actual work experience, and requires a reflective report to be submitted for assessment. You need to ballot for the elective like all electives. Finding a host organization can happen in two ways: 1. You are pro-‐active in seeking out and negotiating a work experience agreement with a host, supported by the guidelines of the Design in Action Program and the DAPCoordinator. 2. You apply via the DAP coordinator to be hosted by an organization listed as seeking students. For semester 2, to date this includes: Social Studio www.thesocialstudio.org/ CERES www.ceres.org.au NOTE: An approved agreement with a host organization must be signed off by beginning of week 3. Approved work experience may take place prior to, and during the semester of being enrolled in the DAP elective so that your 72 hours are completed before end of week 14 in the semester you are enrolled. (For example, 72 hours may be undertaken as 6hours per week for 12 weeks, or 2 weeks at 36 hours per week.) Prerequisite: students must have obtained Credit or higher grades in Design Studio and Design Studies courses for the last year of studies.

MAKE THINGS INTERACTIVE
RMIT University Elective Semester 2, 2013 Course Code: GRAP1038 Class No: 4006
Lecturer: Dr Scott Mitchell School of Architecture and Design This course provides an introduction to electronic prototyping for interactive art and design, including embedded technology, wearable devices, intelligent objects and immerse environments. Based around the Arduino micro-controller, the course presents programming techniques and basic electronics in a hands-on tutorial environment. Students will explore a range of sensor inputs including touch, temperature, light and sound and use these inputs to develop active/ reactive objects and environments. Students will gain capabilities in: • Arduino programing • basic electronics including soldering and breadboard prototyping • using sensors to detect stimuli • controlling outputs including motors, lights and sound No prior knowledge of electronics or programming is required. The software and hardware used in the course has been designed specifically for artists and designers to allow for quick, low-cost development and prototyping of interactive projects. All software is open source and available for students to download. Basic equipment will be supplied by RMIT however students are encouraged to bring laptops to class and to purchase their own Arduino micro-controller, breadboard and basic electronic components (total cost of electronics need not exceed $30).
