Semester S2
ECTS Credits 8
Workload TP(90H)
Scientific area Design Industrial
Entry requirements N.A.
Learning outcomes - Deepening and integration of previous learning, namely regarding the design process.
- Know how to establish the relationships of operative, structural and ergonomic functionality in the design of a space with minimal habitability of industrial production.
- Understand the issues of ergonomic functionality and expressive qualities that design, and user objects establish between themselves at different scales and in a minimum space.
- Know how to combine the formal and symbolic plastic expression of the different materials with their structural and cultural constraints.
- Know how to apply notions of sustainability in relation to the life cycle of materials.
- Know how to apply notions of natural air conditioning in minimal closed spaces in different environmental contexts.
- Know how to operate the various stages of development of a design piece from the initial concept to its final prototype.
Syllabus - Deepening the entire design process in the development of a project of high complexity and scale.
- Functional operability of a minimum space: structure, ergonomics, mobility and habitability.
- Functional operability of objects in minimal space conditions: ergonomics and the relationship of the body with different objects and space scales.
- Plastic expression, emotional design, structure, materiality and scale relation: potential of structural and expressive qualities at different scales.
- Modulation, standardization, technologies and sustainability of the product life cycle.
- Principles of passive air conditioning and environmental thermal comfort in relation to local geographic conditions
- Application of a design methodology for an industrial design product hierarchized in several stages

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria Methodology in which the content of the theoretical classes is implemented in a project, which will be developed on a1/20 scale and, in a 2nd phase, a detailed project of a part / element will be carried out, up to a 1/1 scale. Phases:
• theoretical support lecture
• investigation by the student (collection of information and images of: authors' projects and reference marks, ergonomics data, materials and technologies)
• basic concept in sketches, models and organization charts
• development of models in several phases with an increase in scale
• final project supported by technical information resulting from the research carried out by the student.
Coordination with Design for Circular Economy and Ergonomics and Design, and coordination and support from Engineering Fundamentals
The final classification will be made from the average of the two phases and will be given by valuation criteria in theunderstanding and application of concepts, constructive and operational functionality
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
