### NPAT 2019 Design Syllabus

• For the NPAT 2019 Design course, candidates have to take 2 mandatory papers. The paper I syllabus is similar to the Common/non-engineering paper. The syllabus for paper II is given below:
 Spatial Ability and Visualization Construct Subconstruct Principle of perception and visual design Gestalt Principles of Perception - Proximity, Similarity, Continuation and Closure Huxley-Lester Model: Sight and thought perception Cognitive Perception involves a myriad of mental processes: interpretation, memory, comparison, salience, association, inventory, analysis and recognition Principles of Design: Balance, Proportion, Rhythm, Contrast, Pattern, Movement, Emphasis and Unity Semiotics (Science of signs and symbols): Iconic, Symbolic, Indexical Syntax, Semantics and Pragmatics of Graphics Design Spatial relationships assessment Interpretation of Space- Light and Scale (Spatial Properties) Constructivism—visual blueprinting (relating a pattern of shapes or visually arranging series of planes together) Orthographic representations Isometric representations Perspectives Knowledge of practical and everyday mechanical and scientific concepts Knowledge of form and material, usability, and emotional impact (day-to-day objects) Basic Mechanics Concept of Patterns in data
