St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University (SPbSPU), one of the oldest and prestigious institutions of higher education in Saint-Petersburg, Russia. SPbSPU cooperates with universities, international educational organizations and companies from all over the world and has long and wide experience in providing educational programs in different areas.
Summer module “3D design and Digital fabrication” will be launched in 2014 based on a wide experience the teaching staff has acquired on previous international educational programmes which have been developed since 2006 and have gained popularity among participating universities.
Summer course “3D design and Digital fabrication” aims at bridging the gap between ideas and their physical representation by introducing students to the basics of three-dimensional modeling, analytic drawing, mock-up making and rapid prototyping technologies. It gives a unique opportunity to learn about product design process and practice different approaches to develop an idea into a prototype with the help of digital and analog techniques. The module includes 4 courses:
- Three-dimensional modeling;
- Analytic drawing;
- Mock-up making;
- Digital fabrication.
Upon successful program completion students will receive SPbSPU certificate.
We invite a diverse auditorium of creative people: product or industrial designers, computer graphics artists, fine arts or business-focused students. The module will be of interest for both experienced designers and beginners who'd like to expand their knowledge and understanding of the subject area. Both Russian and international students can take part in the Summer School, all teaching will be conducted in English.
The module consists of 3 weeks of intensive teaching: cross-disciplinary curricula offers courses which represent different stages of design process from hand drawing to computer visualization and production. Extensive practical work is aimed at gaining insight into contemporary product design process and is lead by qualified professors. The facilities for the courses include well-equipped laboratories, computer rooms and drawing studios of St.Petersburg State Polytechnical University. Part of the Summer School takes place in FabLab Polytech, a digital fabrication center located inside University's campus — a unique environment for creativity and collaboration.
We welcome students to come to a wonderful city of St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is the cultural heart of Russia as well as an exiting megapolis of 5-million inhabitants. Studying in Saint-Petersburg is a great experience which will contribute significantly to the student’s future success.
