Prerequisites Candidates for this course are expected to have completed the Level 2 Materials Technology course successfully. Students who wish to take Level 3 Materials Technology without successfully completing the Level 2 course will find the work demanding and must seek prior approval from the HoD Design & Technology. Description This course involves identifying a client with a design issue or need and, in association with the client, investigating, designing, modelling and manufacturing a solution to satisfy the need. The breakdown of time allocation for this course equates to about 60% in a workshop environment, and 40% in a design and theory classroom. Assessment This course contributes towards NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance, with 4 of the 20 credits
externally assessed by portfolio submission, and the remaining 16 credits internally assessed.
The following Achievement Standards will be assessed:
• AS 91622 (4 credits – internal Implement complex procedures to make a specified product using a Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machine. • AS 91610 (6 credits – internal) Develop a conceptual design considering fitness for purpose in the broadest sense. • AS 91620 (6 credits – internal) Implement complex procedures to integrate parts using resistant materials to make a specified product. • AS 91617 (4 credits – external) Undertake a critique of a technological outcome's design.
