Through this six week online course students will be given the opportunity to use Fusion 360, a professional CAD design software, to design realistic digital 3D furniture as well as an environment for it to be rendered in. They will also be taught how to develop professional-level promotional materials for their designs using Adobe Spark.

Online Participation

The course will be taking place within an online classroom on Blackboard Collaborate, a secure platform which is used by University for the Creative Arts.

You may wish to participate via audio, though this is not a requirement and we recommend participation via the chat/messaging function on the page. You will not use a webcam or participate via video. All sessions will be monitored and supervised by University of the Creative Arts employees and will be recorded to allow for multiple viewings by students on the course. 

Participants will be sent a secure link to the virtual classroom each week and this will ensure that only students with an approved place on the course and UCA employees will have access to the room.
