They will gain an in depth understanding of the principles of material manipulation and formation. Students will also be using the latest Digital Technologies with the use of the CNC Mill and will develop practical skills in the welding workshop. Students will learn the safe use and correct applications of oxy-acetylene and Arc Welding processes Students develop design proposals as possible solutions to a problem taking into account Australian Standards. Students will have a choice of projects that will be both appealing and functional. There is an emphasis on workshop safety, the correct use of hand tools and safe use of machinery. Students will document construction processes and evaluate of each of the products they produce. This course leads into Product Design in VCE and VET Engineering.
