Students use of a diverse range of manufacturing technologies such as tools, machines, and/or systems to create a product using appropriate materials. Students produce outcomes that demonstrate the knowledge and skills associated with using systems, processes, and materials such as metals, plastics, wood, composites, ceramics and textiles.
Learning requirements: In this subject, students engage in the design and realisation process and are expected to:
review design features, processes, materials, and production techniques and apply creative thinking to the design of a solution
plan and develop design concepts, and communicate potential features of — and solutions to — a problem or challenge
apply knowledge and understanding of skills, engineering procedures, and techniques, using technology to realise the solution
evaluate processes used in design development and solution realisation
research and discuss ethical, legal, economic, and/or sustainability issues related to technology, materials selected, processes used, and/or solution design.
