Core courses

Industrial design Students use digital design tools to produce student-designed outcomes within an inquiry-based process. Outcomes reflect innovative solutions to design problems encountered throughout the design cycle. Product design tools used may include CAD software, CNC milling, laser cutting, laser engraving and 3D printing. Recommended for students with an interest in design, construction, and digital technologies and the intersection of them.

Wood construction Students develop their skills and understanding of workshop techniques in a wood-based context through the construction of a set project. They are introduced to a range of hand tools andmachinery used in the building construction industry. They learn to read and build froma working drawing.

Prerequisite for: Level 2 Building Construction.

Metal construction Students develop their skills and understanding of workshop techniques in a metal-based context through the construction of a set project. They are introduced to a range of hand tools and machinery used in the engineering industry. They learn to read and build from a working drawing.

Workshop Technology

Core courses

Prerequisite for: Level 2 Mechanical Engineering.

Wood construction Students learn how to safely use a range of wood-based tools and machinery to complete small construction projects in a wood workshop environment. Students gain an appreciation and knowledge of timber properties, tool capability and manufacturing processes in the context of Aotearoa. Recommended for students with an interest in design, carpentry and construction. Metal construction Students learn how to safely use a range of metal based tools and machinery to complete small construction projects in a metal workshop environment. Students gain an appreciation and knowledge of metal properties, tool capability and manufacturing processes in the context of Aotearoa. Recommended for students with an interest in design, construction, and mechanical engineering.

Materials technology Students design and develop a furniture item by working through the design process. They explore possibilities and broaden their understanding of a range of design and modelling tools and techniques, such as research, sketching, CAD modelling, function modeling, and construction techniques.

Prerequisite for: Level 2 Materials Technology.
