On creative design study in an engineering undergraduate course. (1979)
This is a revised edition of Part I of a report of the same title first produced in 1974.
The material has been enlarged and re-written to include developments since that year.
The purpose of the work remains unchanged - that is to record the author's experiences in developing the coursework of Design 3 (Mech.) devoted to the description of the creative process, and student experiences in trying to apply creative effort.
The rationale behind the coursework is described and typical design studies are listed. Some of the studies are analysed to an extent enabling student performance to be assessed. A scheme for the logical assessment of creative design work is proposed and criticised.
The final comments have been amplified in the light of the author's more recent experience, and his slowly developing understanding of the creative content of man's work as an engineer.
