The qualification in Computer Literacy and Skills develops knowledge and practical application of digital tools of design and presentation in architecture. Learners gain skills in basic 2D and 3D graphic representation, using digital methods and develop an understanding of how to use computer software and hardware for clear and effective communication. A relation between various presentation mediums and tools will be explained to help students develop their own computer aided skills.

COURSE OBJECTIVE
Understanding of basic digital tools in computer graphics with focus on architecture;
Give students fundamental knowledge of two- and three-dimensional representation methods
Introduction of the basis of representation methods through computer renderings and plans;
Explanation of different styles and methods of visual representation of textures, sun-studies and shadows, colour in architecture
Training of presentations of ideas through computer generated planar and perspective drawings;
Visualization and presentation of elementary spatial relationships and concepts through diagrams, plans, 3d models and photomontage
