About the Institute
The Institute comprises departments focusing on design, multimedia and information and communication technologies. It is characterized by the specialized teaching in the artistic field of design that determines the character of work at the Institute. The artistic field of design can be taken on undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD levels. The main aim of the Institute is to develop students’ creative potential within the whole process of designers’ training, i.e. to present students with the most possible complex information in the field of humanities and technical sciences; to teach them to be able to use artistic expression; to gain manual skills and to allow them to express their individual creativity.
Video production, photography and multimedia are the other fields of the Institute. The Department of Computer Aided Architectural and Urban Design plays an important role in the process of using new information and communication technologies in the creative work and realizations of architectural and design projects.
The Institute curricula are accredited for all degree levels.
The Department of Design
Its aim is to conduct the pedagogical process at the Institute. The core teaching areas include artistic and creative disciplines, supplemented with the theory and methodology of design and design work, also with history of arts and design, technical subjects (products construction technology and uses and processing of materials). A very important part of the study is the understanding of human behavior and their attitudes to the work environment, ergonomics, as well as ecological and aesthetic criteria of products. Creative design studios are the core subjects, where students develop the skills of model making. The manual and computer design methods are applied proportionately within the whole process of school training.
The core subjects include Design Basics I, II, Drawing, Model Making Studio, Industrial Design Studio I-IV, Physics of Shape, Technology, Model Making Techniques, Technical Mechanics, Constructions in Design, Typography, Graphic Design, History of Design, Surface Finishing, Technology of Product Constructions, Manufacturing Tools, Experimental Design Studio, Theory and Methodology of Design, Semiotics of Design, Integrated Studio, Visual Design – Studio, Mercantile Design – Studio, DTP – Studio.
The Department of Video and Photo Production
Its primary focus is on multimedia and photography teaching. It gives instruction in the core programmes of visual design and multimedia thus extending the scope of Design programme of communication design. Therefore, graphic design is also a part of the curriculum.
Bachelor curriculum introduces basic information it the field of aesthetics, audiovisual media and photography, i.e. it aims to help students to transform technical knowledge into photography, while working with a camera and at photography workshops to test and acquire photographic skills and experience. Students also get involved in the practical demonstrations of audio-video technology where they learn to perceive time and space, distinctiveness and coherence of a kinetic picture.
The MA curriculum at the Institute of Design focuses on visual communication and multimedia design. Students are introduced to specific knowledge and training in the area of graphic design and multimedia product design. Basic typography criteria, complete technology of graphic, photographic and multimedia products are practiced and later employed in their creative work. Students are able to process a complex photographic or multimedia artwork, do complete editing, conduct a user research and propose suitable form and structure of final product. They are able to analyze problems of any brief task, can work with a video camera, conduct photographic techniques, and also are able of computer processing of audio-visual materials, create www presentations, multimedia lectures, campaigns and public relations; they get graphic and multimedia basics in advertisement production, where they make use of digital recording and its processing on professional level. Students master AV media editing and processing. Digital photography and film are commonly applied in they work, they have practical experience of photography and all kinetic design genres.
The Department of Computer Aided Architectural and Urban Design
The main focus of the Department lies in the application of information, communication technologies and computer media in the processes of environment design with a close relation to architecture, urbanism, design, landscape and spatial planning within pedagogical, research and creative framework.
The Department covers teaching of graphic systems, three-dimensional modeling, and computer aided design, as well as highly professional presentations of creative work by multimedia systems.
The lectures focus on technical and programme means of computer graphics, on application of IKT in architecture, urban planning and design work, also on comparison of various graphic systems. Tutorials deal with practical applications of graphic systems in students’ studio work assignments.
Education on MA level aims at specialized studio work with overall multimedia support of architectural, urban, interior and design work.
The core subjects of the BA curriculum are Computer aided architectural, urban and design work, Computer composition and presentation and 3D modeling. Among the elective subjects are the following: Computer aided studio work, Computer aided special studio and Special design studio.
The core subjects of MA study are specialized studios of CAAD, CAID, CAUD and CALAD and Virtual design.
The core subjects provided for the Design students are: Basics in Designing I, II, Drawing, Studio Modeling, Model Building Techniques, Technical Mechanics, Types of Structures in Product Design, Typeface, Graphic Design, History of design, Surfacing, Technology of Product Structures, Production Machines, Experimental Design studio, Theory and Methods in Design, Semiotics in Design, Integrated Studio, Studio in Visual Design, Studio in Marketing Design, DTP Studio.
Science and Research
Department of Computer Aided Architectural and Urban Design has ample contacts with foreign institutions and international research cooperation, namely within the ECAAD (Education in Computer Aided Architectural Design in Europe), a SOCRATES / ERASNUS mobility programme with University of Luton, UK, UPMF in Grenoble, France, University of Tennessee, USA, as well as the cooperation within the international consortium of the LUDA partners.

FURDÍK, Juraj et al: LUDA – Large Urban Distressed Area – Project of the 5th Frame Programme (2003 – 2006) on topic of Energies, Environment and Sustainable Development. LUDA is a research project of section 4: A City of Future and Cultural Heritage. Research participants of Bratislava Rača additional staff.
Most of the European cities have large urban areas, which through their historical development came to a considerable violation of environment, economy and social qualities of the settled areas. At present, these areas need urgent improvement of quality of life.
Especially in the first periods of improvement and urban rehabilitation, the resources are used in an uneconomical way, which is followed by further degradation of their use, and make the later area development more complicated. This is in contradiction with visions of strategic development: there are three main areas of problems: the vastitude of these areas, complexity of problems and unclear future development. LUDA is aiming at facing these problems by providing methods and means for the strategic access to urban rehabilitation. It also seeks to support the cities in their initiatives and management of new solutions. The main aim of the project is to contribute to improvement of quality of life in large urban distressed areas.
