2.1.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
CSM的作品集要求中多次提到 a range of 或 a number of 等词汇,意思是比较强调多种方法和多种思路的运用。同时,由于设计思维的抽象性,设计师需要能够很好地沟通和表达自己的想法,所以CSM的要求中也写到了communicate一词。

2.2 关于课程的解读

2.2.1 CSM课程主干:
Unit 1: Critical and Methodological Approaches to Design consists of a series of projects varying in length from one to six weeks. These introduce a variety of research methods and issues relevant to the discipline, which are then directly implemented in the creation/realisation of design work. The unit also concludes collaborative projects with students from other courses across the college.
Unit 2: Positioning and Professional Practice focuses on positioning design practice through a review of professional design practice, by engaging external agencies and expertise, and reflection of this activity through design practice. The unit consist of 1×8 week project, 3×1 week projects and 6 weeks of studio practice.
Unit 3: Self-Directed Design Research requires the student to specify, manage, implement and evaluate a Self-Directed Design Project informed by themes and issues identified in Unit 2. This unit consist of 20 weeks self-directed study with tutorial support.

2.2.2 关键词:
Research Methods
Collaborative
Multi-Discipline
Self-Directed
Tutorial

2.2.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
作品集的要求中体现出学校对差异化思路的要求,而主干课程中也能体现出这一点,学校的“Multi-Discipline”的思维贯穿课程的第一部分,同时也要求学习众多思维和方法。所以,基于CSM这一风格,作品集中需要体现出各种“方法”的运用,并且体现出能够综合运用的设计能力。


3.The University of Edinburgh | 爱丁堡大学
MA Product Design
学制:1年
费用:19000英镑/年
语言:雅思总分6.5分,单科不低于6.0分


3.1 关于作品集的解读

3.1.1 作品集要求:
Your portfolio should demonstrate evidence of:
-excellent ability to think critically through drawing and making
-strong ability to critically analyse current situations involving the interactions between people and products
-strong ability to communicate preferred design-led future situations through the development and resolution of drawings, models, prototypes, and mock-ups in various physical and material media formats
-strong understanding of contemporary design challenges and themes relevant to designed products and the people for whom they are designed
-ability to engage people centred research activities relevant to product design
-a high level of individuality, originality and creativity

3.1.2 关键词:

3.1.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
爱丁堡的要求中,比较在乎严谨的思路和执行,学校的作品集要求中甚至详细提到设计执行的几大步骤,并且相关模型的词多次出现:models, prototypes, mock-ups,这些内容都是需要在项目创作过程中运用和体现的。 另外,学校在要求中也提到people-centred research, 所以项目最好能干体现出UCD的设计思维。

3.2 关于课程的解读

3.2.1 爱丁堡大学课程主干:
One-year MA degree
If you choose to pursue the one year MA degree, you will engage your dissertation in the summer period following the first year of study, focusing on the development of an individual project which emphasises product theory in context.
Emphasis on the MA degree pathway is to prepare students with interests in design management, policy or direction, or pursuing further academic research programmes such as the PhD.

3.2.2 关键词:
One-Year MA:
Product Theory
Context
Design Management
Policy Direction
Two-Year MFA:
Research
Develop
Deliver
Making
Prototyping
Manufacture

3.2.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
由于绝大部分申请都是一年的,所以在一年的课程设置中,在除了设计思维和方法的内容外,学校比较强调理论方法和实际设计的“语境(context)”,也就是平时我们常说的design for real needs. 所以辅导过程中会结合作品集要求和课程梗概加强真实与落地项目部分。


4.Loughborough University | 拉夫堡大学
MA Industrial Design and Technology

4.2.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
拉夫堡的课程体系比较均衡,既强调设计本身的能力如设计技法和思路,也包含设计下游的拓展,如商业化和生产加工等。所以在作品集辅导的策略上,需要在内容安排上兼顾前后,并且在呈现层次上尽可能丰富。


5.Glasgow School of Art | 格拉斯哥艺术学院
Product Design Engineering MSc
学制:1年
费用:15240 英镑/年
语言:雅思总分6.0分,单科不低于5.5分


5.1 关于作品集的解读

5.1.1/ 作品集要求:
Most applicants are required to submit a portfolio, with the exception of applicants to MSc Product Design Engineering, MSc International Management and Design Innovation, and applicants to MDes Design Innovation who do not have an Art and Design background.
Your portfolio should:
– comprise of 25 clear images
– be self-explanatory and provide evidence of research, design development and process, technical knowledge, technical skill and resolved work.
If the portfolio is accessible via a URL then please ensure that the link is live, and will remain so throughout the assessment period.

5.1.2/ 关键词:
25 image
self-explanatory
research
development
technical

5.1.3/ 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
因为是MSc的专业,所以作品集要求了强调了 development 和 technical 这类词汇,这个与大部分国内本科生工业设计知识体系是有区别的,特别是艺术类工业设计方向。 所以在GSA的作品集准备上,会比较注重材料、结构等方面的分析,以适应院校要求。

 

5.2 关于课程的解读

5.2.1 格拉斯哥艺术学院课程主干:
Core courses
-Advanced manufacture
-Core research skills for postgraduates
-Human factors
-Integrated engineering design
-Micro-electronics in consumer products
-Product design engineering introduction project
-MSc project.
Optional courses
-Instrumentation and data systems
-Software engineering
-The Glasgow School of Art elective
(you will choose from a list of options)

5.2.2 关键词:
Engineering
Manufacture
Human Factor / Ergonomics
Data

5.2.3 马克笔设计留学独家解读:
主干课程里有很多关于engineering 和 manufacture 的内容,这部分内容需要通过作品后期的CMP分析来完成;而院校提到的 Human Factor 和 Ergonomics 部分内容,最好能够通过制作过程中对于人机的分析与提升部分来做体现。
