Specialist Subject Areas
Charlie is particularly interested in the creative application of CAD
software, encouraging students to experiment with different approaches
to the creation, development and presentation of their designs,
combining manual and digital techniques resulting in individual and
unique projects and styles.
She has a hands-on role within the course, based in the studio day to
day, providing tutorials and support in IT, CAD & VBIM (Virtual
building information modelling) as well as manual drafting, rendering
and design advice.
Returning to the job after three years working in a different area of
the school, she is keen to expand her expertise in rapid prototyping
and environmental studies.
Charlie left university as a near-technophobe, and hopes that none of
her students do the same, therefore she aspires to make the technology
that her graduates are likely to experience in the workplace accessible
and interesting to all.
