Level 3 Product Design Technology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Norris

This is a full year course in which students design and develop an innovative outcome based on a context of their choice and using mixed materials for the construction. It will be covering areas such as:

- Research and design 

- Materials technology 

- Electronics 

- Complex workshop skills 

- Computer Aided Design

The students will complete a manufacturing project over the course of the year and record their construction processes in a log book. They will also complete an external report based on the concept of what good design is. They will research existing designers, investigate the development of judgement criteria and then critique the quality of an outcome of their choice. This external report provides research and evaluation scaffolding to the students to support them with the development of the main project. The report is marked externally and provides the ability for students to gain endorsement in the subject.

Note: This course is university entrance approved.
