Course summary

**From making Captain America’s shield to creating prototype Formula One cars, model making at AUB prepares students for an exciting range of careers.** With an international reputation, it is a leading course in its field, enabling students to progress into the diverse world of professional makers. The course is suited to creative makers, designers and problem solvers. **What you will learn**We deliver an agile curriculum that looks ahead and responds rapidly to new developments in technology and techniques. At the same time, we encourage traditional craftsmanship. Each is respected in its own right, and creative combinations of high technology and craft skill are common. The course enables students and graduates to explore a rich variety of disciplines. It equips them with a broad skill set which can be applied to any area of making especially those combining artistic and technical skills. Our aim to teach the art of making in all its forms, from clay to pixels, has a proven track record both in terms of student satisfaction and graduate employment. Experiencing an extensive array of making techniques rewards our graduates with unique and diverse skill sets. We pride ourselves on our ability to support students in creating their own ‘pathways’ to successful careers. The course embraces new and emerging technologies and techniques, maintaining currency and diversity through well-established communications with industry. Students are encouraged to explore many different types of modelmaking and develop versatile portfolios which expand employment opportunities. At the same time, the development of individual special interests is supported and encouraged. Modelmaking is a global industry and the range of opportunities is vast. Visiting industry specialists present their work and highlight opportunities to students through lectures, workshops and tutorials. Specialist subjects can be developed through work experience and learning agreement-led briefs.Across the three years approximately 77% of your time will be contact hours, including scheduled teaching sessions, but also supervised time in the workshop or studio, and the remainder will be independent study. 100% of assessment for this course is coursework based.**By the end of the course you will be able to...**- Exploit your skills of craftsmanship and scholarship to identify and achieve your creative and professional aspirations.- Present professional quality outcomes demonstrating safe, confident and appropriate use of technology, tools and materials.- Demonstrate an ability to manage a project through effective independent study and embed a sound-working ethos.- Appreciate the relationship between theory and practice and be able to relate your work to the social, cultural and historical concepts of related disciplines.- Demonstrate a working knowledge of ethical and sustainable concepts within making practice.- Demonstrate a refined approach to research and development by applying intellectual skills and effective critical evaluation.- Apply knowledge of the professional practice of commercial making to continuously develop a broad set of transferable skills.- Demonstrate critical self-awareness and effective communication by presenting yourself and your work to others.- Appreciate the possibilities and restrictions offered by combinations of established, emerging and future technologies.**Studios and resources**Students share purpose built workstations with mains power, lighting and storage space.
