Best Course Studies in Product Design in Germany 2017. Summer University block 1: June 12th - July 6th, 2017 Course price: 2200 Euros 18 hours of class sessions per week, 5 ECTS credit points Topic: 3D Scanning and Printing Target group Students with an interest in 3D printing, 3D scanning and who want to gain insight into work with professional 3D printing technologies. As this technology covers numerous application areas, this course could be interesting for students from scientific disciplines, engineering, design, fine art or art history. Short Description Hosted in the fully-equipped laboratory of the 3D Lab of the TU Berlin, this four-week course offers introduction to working with professional 3D printing technologies such as laser sintering with polyamide and powder printing with mineral powder (modified gypsum). The course provides an introduction to manufacturing 3D printed objects with the laser sintering system and the powder printer of the 3D Lab, as well as data generation and data preparation for it. Participants will gain basic knowledge of the use of two professional 3D printing technologies, structured light scanners and related software. The course starts with an introduction to the technologies used at the 3D Lab and selected projects from its portfolio, to give participants an impression of the various possible uses of 3D technologies. Ongoing course lectures will be accompanied by detailed practical units focusing on the use of the machines and the preparation of printable objects. Specifically, the practical training will develop student’s skills in the use of structured light scanners, 3D printing technologies, and in meeting the geometrical requirements for successful 3D prints. As 3D printing and 3D scanning cover numerous application areas, this course is interesting for participants from several disciplines including science, engineering, design, fine art or art history. The course provides a good starting point for students who are interested in further applications of these technologies. Prerequisites The general prerequisites of the TU Berlin Summer University are as follows: at least one year of university experience + English level B2 or equivalent. A specific requirement of the course is an, at least, basic knowledge of CAD software. It is recommended that students use their own laptops for processing their own 3D files.

found both in the cultural studies in research and in the design sciences, the "Knowledge in / Knowledge in the making" increasingly interested. The exteriority of thought is observed in their dynamic development and the remuneration of thinking and doing as well as the role of artifacts involved to be reassessed. This development meets the tasks of structuring knowledge work in organizations that is increasingly seen as a design object. Design Thinking Here, a charting thought, currently called "Design Thinking" has proven economy. Thus there are two good reasons to re-consider the knowledge-forming functions of the design: On the one hand it is necessary to determine the knowledge in design clearer so that self-understanding of the discipline to improve and to connect with technical cultivation research. On the other hand, the functions of the design for the knowledge processes are working out of third parties to meet the demanding tasks of future knowledge design requirements. Both areas of responsibility are increasingly recognizing a diversity of thinking and working styles, design and modes of knowledge, knowledge and representation types (cognitive diversity). The design can use this base to reposition itself in the design of action and imaginative spaces of knowledge work (enabling spaces). It is the integrated design of knowledge, media and space as cognitive design, profound innovation (radical innovation) allows. The under the impact of emerging digital media early formulated concept of "knowledge designs" (Bolz 1993) learns as an update and clarification. The cognitive dwelling - Design, Computers and Cognition Among the methods of knowledge designs include the design specific model thinking that connects to cybernetics, systems theory and cognitive sciences. The subject of a so-understood design is cognitive habitation which includes social processes, media representations, technical systems and physical spaces. Thus (Winograd, Mitchell, Gero) is connected to the international discussion on design, Computers and Cognition. However, the German version of the knowledge Designs wins a particular strength through their connection with the local media studies, especially in its manifestation as a cultural technique (Siegert). Matters of concern Another research topic is the "question of the thing" (Heidegger), particularly in the expression as actor-network theory (Latour). This is based on chains of action hybrid actants which questions a "Dingpolitik". Designer as specialists for things and interactions have participated little in these discussions, but can make a substantial contribution to the future shape of "matters of concern" (Latour). [-]

Best Course Studies in Product Design in Germany 2017. In Klanglabor the KHM is a project-oriented sound practice combines with current sound discourses in the form of seminars, lectures, practical exercises or work presentations. As interdisciplinary and modular organized place the sound laboratory provides both space for the development of artistic projects sound as well as for workshops on instrument making, musical production techniques or media archaeological topics. The range of seminars offered includes sound synthesis method in hardware and software (programming), the use of sensors, interface and app development, Radio Arts / Ars Acustica, Field Recording / soundscape composition, text-sound composition / Poetry Sonore, and theoretical reflection of auditory culture and music and art history. In addition, the sound lab offers with the annual basic seminar sound an introduction to the various themes for interested students that do not yet have little or no experience in dealing with sound. Moreover, curates and organizes the sound lab in the auditorium of the KHM the concert series "Nocturnes" that presents outstanding and exceptional artistic positions between music, sound art and lecture-performance in three events per semester.
