How and why communication has a role to play in engineering design.

This is the second of five webinars designed to take you through the conceptual design process.

Design is a moving process that often needs more than just one person to manifest itself. To do this we need ways to communicate our designs to one another.

Once you have generated your ideas, how do you communicate those design ideas? Do you struggle to get your peers to understand your ideas?

This interactive webinar will look at introducing techniques and practise sessions to aid design communication. Using sketching techniques and tools, along with thoughts on showing the right information at the right time, you will gain an insight into good practise communication.
 

Learning outcomes:

  • To gain an insight into sketching your ideas
  • Appreciate the different types of sketching
  • Appreciate the structure of good communication in a design setting
  • Understand the range of communication mediums and how to use them to your benefit
 

Intended for

Members with a design role or those that have an interest in idea communication within engineering. Students and professionals welcome.


The live webinar includes an interactive Q&A session with our expert speakers.

Booking will close 24 hours prior to the webinar.
