2015-2016 Laptop System Requirements & Recommended Software for the Interior Design Program

System Requirements:
The UNT Interior Design Program is proud to make use of the most current technology to better prepare students for the professional design career. In order to maximize it, we require a laptop computer for students at the start of their junior level classes. The software programs we use demand more computing power, RAM and graphic capabilities (video cards), because the advanced software that we use changes and updates continuously with a faster manner. In this regard, you may approach to get a laptop with higher performance.

This information is to help students in the UNT ID program understand the laptop system requirements. Among many design software programs recommended by the program, Revit software demands higher system requirements. Obtaining a laptop with the system requirements for Revit is critical to avoid technical hassles.

For your reference, the College of Visual Arts and Design (CVAD) labs are updating AutoCAD 2016 and Revit 2016 during summer 2015 with a Microsoft Windows7 64-bit Operating System.

You can find useful information regarding Autodesk products from the following links. Especially you make sure your laptop meets System requirements for Autodesk Revit 2016 which can be found from System Requirements on Autodesk website link below.

Autodesk: www.autodesk.com/
System Requirements: knowledge.autodesk.com/support/system-requirements
Education Community Free Software: www.autodesk.com/education/free-software/all

Use of Macs:
Some of the software used in engineering is incompatible with the Apple Macintosh Operating System (OS) and Mac versions of the software are not available. Revit and AutoCAD operating on Mac OS were released in late 2011 though the AutoCAD course in the UNT ID program, which uses these programs on Windows OS only, NOT on Mac OS. Since AutoCAD has long been used on Windows OS in the design industry, operating the program on Windows OS is pervasive and more beneficial to students. Due to the fact that the interfaces on Windows OS and Mac OS are significantly different, learning those programs on Mac OS is fully the student’s responsibility.

It does not mean you need a PC only for Revit and AutoCAD. If you have a Mac PC dual platform, you can run them on a Windows OS.

Free Student Copies of AutoCAD and Revit:
Autodesk website provides free software downloads for students. It includes educational versions of AutoCAD, Revit, etc. Please be aware that CVAD labs are running AutoCAD 2016 (Not AutoCAD Architecture 2016) and Revit 2016 from Fall 2015 with Windows7 64-bit operating system. Please check the Interior Design Blog (untintdes.blogspot.com/) occasionally for updated information.

In order to get the free software downloads, go to Autodesk website. Under Products, click Students downloads. It will direct you to Education Community Free Software. Or simply click the link provided above.

Recommended Software for the UNT ID Program:
• Autodesk AutoCAD (Not AutoCAD Architecture): Junior year, first semester (Free download available from Autodesk website)
• Autodesk Revit: Junior year, first semester (Free download available from Autodesk website)
• SketchUp: Junior year, first semester (Free download available from Google website; SketchUp Pro is for charge)
Microsoft Office: including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint
• Adobe Creative Suite: Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign are useful in design

UNT Bookstore may offer software programs to students with a discounted price. Please visit the bookstore website at unt.bncollege.com

Optional Equipment:
External Hard Drive/Flash Drive: Students should diligently save their work and keep at least 2 backups in a separate location from their laptops. In this regard, external hard drives, 1 GB (recommended as minimum capacity) USB flash drives, or combination of both is recommended to make at least 2 separate backups and transfer files between computers. You may use a flash drive to turn in assignments and others for backups. Importance of backups cannot be over-emphasized. Note: Lost or damaged files of your work are not acceptable excuses for missing assignments.
External Mouse: Operating AutoCAD, Revit, and SketchUP using a touchpad is cumbersome. You are recommended to use a mouse for efficiency.
Printer: Although there are printers available in the CVAD lab, you may elect to have a printer at home. Some of our assignments are in 11x17 format, so a printer that will print up to 11x17 is useful.

What is Revit?
Revit is a full 3D Building Information Modeling program, or parametric Computer-Aided Design program, which allows the user to design, create, and publish contract documents to clients, consultants, and construction management teams in the field. The term “parametric” refers to the process of constructing a virtual building manifested in a 3D computer model where each component is created once thus providing bi-directional manipulation that occurs instantly and universally.

Revit produces a reliable digital representation of the building available for design decision making, design scope, scheduling, high-quality construction document production, and cost estimates. Having the ability to keep information up-to-date and accessible in an integrated digital environment gives students a clear vision of their projects, as well as the ability to make informed decisions faster. Revit can be applied across the spectrum of architectural and interior design: schematic design, design development, construction document, building analysis, visualization, etc.

The 3D visualization capabilities of Revit benefits students in understanding how spaces are put together. Revit allows students to view their designs in 3D, enabling them to clearly identify and solve design problems in the early stage of the design process.

Autodesk has developed three versions of Revit: Revit Architecture for architects and building designers, Revit Structure for structural engineers, and Revit MEP for mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers.

UNT Interior Design Program Announced New MA for Sustainability Program

The Interior Design program in the College of Visual Arts & Design at the University of North Texas (UNT) announced a new Master of Arts in Design with Concentration in Interior Design for Sustainability program (MA for Sustainability) in a reception during Earth Day Texas 2015 (4/24 – 4/26) in Fair Park, Dallas.

Master of Arts in Design
with Concentration in Interior Design for Sustainability
(MA for Sustainability)
The MA in Design with a Concentration in Interior Design for Sustainability (MA for Sustainability) was created to provide our interior design students and the design community of North Texas the opportunity to acquire expanded knowledge on green and sustainable design to enhance their professional work and careers. Although the UNT Interior Design program has integrated this important subject across our curriculum for many years, this MA degree will add significant competency and applicable skills for those who choose to complete the degree.

The inclusion of this important knowledge is widely supported in all accredited Interior Design programs, but there are few programs specifically focusing on the subject in this region. It is our goal that the graduates of this program will develop sustainable projects and plan courses of investigation that lead to the discovery of new insights into sustainable built environments.

While the program starts in fall 2015 with a group of 10 seniors, we fully expect that this number will increase as the professional design community discovers the program and seeks to enroll.

The MA for Sustainability in the Department of Design at UNT prepares students to not only study, but to define and re-invent solutions for the fundamental challenges that impact the interior design profession in an increasingly changing world. The MA for Sustainability is a Grad Track Degree Program at UNT. The Grad Track refers to an accelerated Bachelor’s and Master’s degree program designed to allow highly successful undergraduate students to use graduate courses taken as an undergraduate to apply towards both the graduate and undergraduate degrees.

The program is also designed for candidates from practice interested in enhancing their knowledge in sustainable design or to assist entry-level graduate candidates in formulating a research agenda to allow them to continue in the MFA in Design with a Concentration in Interior Design. This program is also designed for recently graduates and design professionals who wish to develop in-depth knowledge or specific skills in sustainability.

Most of graduate courses for the MA for Sustainability will be offered in the Design Research Collaborative (DRC) in downtown Dallas, 1901 Main Street, based on course availability and scheduling. The DRC location will provide convenient access to the program for regional professional design community. Since the MA for Sustainability program is located in a vital and prosperous region with an active design community and industry professionals are available and willing to provide support, providing more opportunities to expose and integrate the graduate students with the regional professional community through collaborative projects will be an excellent benefit.

The MA for Sustainability program offers holistic learning processes of interior design with an emphasis on sustainability. The program strives to nurture and advance interior designers’ professional design knowledge and skills in sustainable design. The program strengthens and supports the knowledge, skills, and techniques necessary in competent interior design practice while providing the profound exploration of sustainable design. This includes proficiencies that address sustainable project management practices, research methods, problem solving, critical thinking, graphic and written communication, ethics, and social responsibility.

The curricular objectives of the MA for Sustainability program are to improve our graduates’ abilities to:

• understand the concept and history of sustainability
• understand work ethics and social responsibility
• understand research foundation and methodologies
• critically review literature relevant to their project/research topics
• identify and develop their project/research agenda
• investigate self-elected questions by means of research
• specialize and expand their body of knowledge for sustainability
• manage sustainable design projects professionally
• demonstrate effective writing and presentation skills for knowledge exchange
• understand the global impact of sustainable design on individuals, groups and society
• work in a collaborative environment

The MA in Sustainability candidates are expected to develop sustainable projects and plan a course of investigation that leads to the discovery of new insights into sustainable built environments. This graduate level investigation includes both studio work and scholarly investigation using the research process.

We would also like to provide more opportunities to integrate the graduate students with the regional professional community in a research capacity and/or through interdisciplinary and multicultural collaborative experiences. The MA for Sustainability program will also facilitate the development of a cohort group of graduate students in the ID MFA program. Since our program is located in a vital and prosperous region with an active design community and industry professionals are available and willing to provide support, providing more opportunities to expose and integrate the graduate students with the regional professional community through collaborative projects will be an excellent benefit.
