Winter course “3D Concept Modeling” aims at bridging the gap between ideas and their physical representation by introducing students to the basics of three-dimensional modeling, sketching 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.

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 2 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 SPbPU. 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.
