The condition to receive a credit for the semester, which gives the right to take the exam, is active class attendance (minimum 2/3 scheduled classes confirmed by tutorial) and the degree of completion of each task to enable the objective assessment of the final result
CREDIT / EXAM: Individual task mark components:
1.) Analytical synopsis of the topic (theoretical, comparative study, etc.)
2.) Well-structured pre-design documentation (sketches, drawings, photos of 3D models, descriptions, etc.)
3.) P r o t o t y p e !
4.) Project digitally documented on CD-ROM / digital portfolio (photographs, rendering, film / animation, alternatively 2D board, etc.)
5.) Self-presentation of the final result
Minimum requirements (a pass mark):
1.) Complete delivery of components defined as the basic assumptions for the individual tasks
2.) Prompt delivery of semester tasks completed to a degree that enables the correct interpretation of the author’s intentions
3.) Documentation and presentation comprehensibility
Requirements (an above-pass mark): - beyond minimum requirements
1.) Ability to rationally analyse the subject matter of the semester tasks
2.) Achievement of above-average quality parameters for the prototypes, workmanship care and attention to detail
3.) Ability to convincingly argue for the design decisions taken
4.) Originality of documentation and presentation
Maximum requirements (a very good mark): - beyond advanced requirements
1.) Ability to effectively integrate information from multiple sources
2.) Own design innovation
3.) Independence and work discipline
Requirements for an excellent mark: - beyond maximum requirements
Activity which considerably exceeds the standard requirements listed in the syllabus (awards, honourable mention or participation in important competitions, exhibitions, presentations, etc.)
Learning goal: (planned outcomes in terms of knowledge)
A student who completes a 1st cycle course should be prepared to take a 2nd cycle course in product design, design or the design arts.
Training goal: (planned outcomes in terms of skills)
Preparing the graduate to take independent decisions concerning style related to the contemporary creative industries, to take part and collaborate in product design projects at the auxiliary and operational level and/or to undertake individual activity in original design.
Practical goal: (planned social competence)
The student should understand the economic, social and cultural mechanisms that influence consumer decisions.

Keywords: Object, Product, Context, Unique Design, Styling
|form of classes||
The classes include group and individual project tutorials at every stage of their delivery, complete with joint discussions and analyses concerning the possible ways of interpreting the semester assignment subjects. The assignments are complemented with short introductory lectures or multimedia presentations on the meaning context and invigilated assignments as technological or skills experiments to increase the knowledge and skills required to deliver the projects with operational efficiency – also in partnership and coordination with external entities (such as production companies, invited experts).
In the periods between the scheduled classes, the students are obliged to work individually in a scope determined during corrective meetings and tutorials.
|subject area coverage||
The base: DESIGN 2 course contains three consecutive levels of advancement equivalent to a semester: Object (semester IV), Product (semester V), Context (semester VI), the final series (semester VII) is dedicated to the independent delivery of a specific diploma subject or a product with functional and stylistic features determined by the student.
Object module contains an advanced study of the style of form, which is a direct continuation of the Basics of Design, general visual art and art subjects. The Product module additionally accounts for functional and utilitarian inter-relationships and the need to maintain design discipline due to the requirement to introduce a prototype into series or limited production, the economic use of materials, etc. The Context module additionally introduces the element of social and cultural and/or marketing analysis placing design activities within the relationships between sender / receiver, maker / user, manufacturer / consumer. The 1st cycle diploma is an independent conceptual and design study which integrates the experience of completing the entire Object / Product / Context learning cycle, complemented with the necessary aspect of original designer interpretation.
