There is a growing demand from industry for students who are both creative and technically literate. We start looking at design in its basic form. Students design, model and produce a product from a brief. They learn to communicate design ideas, and cover the technology design process, computer modelling, freehand and technical drawing and prototype production. Students can choose from a range of products from picture frames, t-shirt transfer design, jewellery and a sign back lit by LEDs. Students may come with their own needs and design ideas..
- Product design methods
- Heat transfer
- Computer-aided design
- Design aesthetics
- Materials selection
Students will also look at STEM. This is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. Students will look at a project where they will work as a team using all 4 subject areas. This course is project based. learning.
Industrial designers work across many different industries. They may work in design departments for large manufacturing companies, design or engineering consultancies, architectural practices, or may be self-employed with their own company. Other areas include: furniture electronics packaging recreational and sports equipment medical appliances consumer goods vehicle design ergonomics entirely new fields/inventions.,
