This course includes instruction in Calculus topics common to the standard college first
semester Calculus course. It begins with a review of algebra and trigonometry; then the idea
of limits and continuity is introduced. With the knowledge of limits and continuity the
student develops the concept of the derivative and its applications. At the end, the student
studies the Antiderivative of elementary functions and the applications of the definite integral
in real-life situations.

The course is geared to engage design students to creatively showcase their work and reflect on their design by building their own e-portfolio. Building on their knowledge with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, students shall develop the skill to elevate the clarity and legibility of their own designs, and apply the rules of composition to design the graphic/visual structure of their portfolio through InDesign Adobe Software. Students are expected to work on the output of their courses taken during the previous semesters- the outcome of which shall be posted at the end of the semester on ISSUU and/or Behance- the main platforms for projecting professional work

Design as an investigation and reflection on the process: This course builds on the exposure, understanding, and introductory ability of students in critical thinking, graphic communication, and design thinking skills that are acquired in Design Methods course. Focusing on our natural and synthetic environment, students shall develop further these skills through design investigations on various sensorial and conceptual set of problems. During a well-established design process, students shall learn the necessary tools and methods to re-present sensory phenomena on multiple levels, model and fabricate

objects, systems, form and space, and re-construct structural organizations within the field of Architecture. By the end of the course, students should be able to employ the various stages of the creative thought process (including critical thinking skills) in the task of producing any design solution, they should be initiated to rigorous critical inquiry to challenge untested assumptions and to build diagrams to reformulate and conceptualize problems/issues. In addition, students shall be motivated to learn independently and they should be able to transfer cognitive and imaginative thinking to drawings and physical models that express their personality and convey the concept driving the solution. Design exercises - culturally known as Projects - evolve through stages of conceptual and material development to final presentation and critical discussions that focus on intentions and process.

‘Landscape’ preserves a wide spectrum of meanings concluded in three main prospects: pragmatic needs, cultural significance, and aesthetic order. They are ephemeral and subject to many transformations, their practical, cultural, and aesthetic aspects are often embedded in a palimpsest of changing values relative to time and place.

The course introduces topical lecture series tackling main landscape principles, theories and practices in architecture and urbanism. It is an overview of the development of landscape design through time, from the classical, to the modern, reaching post-modern periods. It is an overview on historical examples of gardens, parks, communities, environmental planning and design in a holistic approach to detect trends, to relate yesterday to today, and to question the present and its connection to the future.

This course alerts students to the rules and regulations of the university; it also alerts students to university expectations, and the differences between rote learning and self-motivation; it offers guidelines to enable students to make a more informed career choice. The course also informs students about communication etiquette (including e-mail etiquette), as well as writing and formatting of CVs.
