This course will immerse students in advanced techniques of design communication and evaluation for simulation-based research on user experience in designed environments. Through lectures, readings, demos, and hands on exercises, the course explores advanced visualization media for design and design research.

When Offered Spring.

Permission Note Intended for: juniors interested in honors theses, seniors and graduate students.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: working knowledge and experience in 3D modeling and rendering.

Distribution Category (LAD-HE)

  • Students will demonstrate a coherent understanding of design and design research with advanced computer mediated 3D visualization technologies in the field of architecture, interior design, and user experience/interface design.
  • Students will apply analytic knowledge from readings and discussions to critically review and evaluate existing theories in interdisciplinary areas of environment and behavior, environmental psychology, design communication and human-computer interaction.
  • Students will brainstorm viable and innovative research topics and learn how to start and finish an experimental study from readings, lectures, demos, and discussions.
  • Students will propose mini studies of their own based on selected experimental research frameworks and conduct preliminary user experience experiments (with as few as five subjects).
  • Students will learn and demonstrate advanced 3D visualization skills required for experimental stimuli development.
