Teacher in Charge: Mr L. Smiley
Students will develop their understanding of the design process and technological practice by producing a multi-materials product and an accompanying portfolio of their design work.
This course has an emphasis on developing a broad range of Engineering techniques and practices alongside product design techniques and digital design and manufacturing skills.
Students will learn to work with a variety of equipment including 3d modelling software, 3d printers, laser cutters, metal lathes, welders and Engineering hand tools.
They will also learn to manipulate materials such as plastics and metals as well as create a simple electrical circuit.
Industrial Design Engineering is tailored for students along the full spectrum from fabrication, sheet metal work, Mechanical Engineering to University and Tertiary study in Design, Industrial Design and so forth.
Additional transferable skills include CAD to CAM manufacturing, Divergent thinking and problem solving.
