We are happy to announce the 2nd round of “A Matter of Perspective” – an innovative multi-disciplinary course, combining art, science and engineering, allowing students to interact with their peers from other departments.
This is a project-based course in which students from Computer Science, Architecture, and Mechanical Engineering will join forces in small teams and work throughout the semester on the development of a new concept that involves algorithms, coding, design, and realization through advanced digital fabrication tools.
We aim for projects that will make the observers stop, scratch their head, and think. Some projects will have a clear functionality, whereas others will have artistic value while making use of interesting physical mechanisms or novel algorithms. A selection of project ideas and directions will be proposed by the course staff at the beginning of the semester, but students are encouraged and expected to develop these concepts and introduce their own ‘twists’.
The course will include tours of the fabrication facilities in different departments at the Technion, as well as frontal lectures about fabrication methods, geometry research, and more.
Creative and open minded students (both graduate students and advanced undergraduates) who seek to unleash their creativity are welcome to register through course numbers 206822 or 236629.
