This first-year design syllabus for Cambridge computer science students was developed in response to a suggestion by Gillian Crampton-Smith, and developed with input from Crucible members teaching design courses elsewhere:

The course was advertised in the 2007 Cambridge prospectus, but subsequently withdrawn before accepting any students, after review by the teaching committee of the Computer Laboratory, on the basis that the department could not guarantee continuity of a course where teaching was distributed among members of the Crucible network.

Practical sessions were to be taught in a studio style, with students working on practical design assignments in a shared space with dedicated tutors. “Lecture” hours were to be taught in seminar style rather than as formal lectures.

The syllabus is documented in: Blackwell, A.F. (2007). Toward an undergraduate programme in Interdisciplinary Design. University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory Technical Report UCAM-CL-TR-692.
