Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Burr

Level 1 Engineering contains Level 1 and Level 2 Achievement Standards and Unit Standards and is designed to provide a broad range of engineering aligned knowledge and skills that are transferable to both Tertiary and Vocational pathways. Students will gain specialized knowledge and experience during the design, planning and construction of predominantly metal based projects.

The course is a blend of practical and written Standards and has an emphasis on personalized learning. This course has 2 compulsory Standards and students are able to choose additional standards that reflect the demands of their project, abilities and personal interest.

Students can design and manufacture a drift trike or design their own project that reflects their own interests and abilities. In 2019 there will be a focus on manufacturing CNC and laser cut parts during the manufacturing phase of their project.

Students will normally be entered for between 16 and 24 credits and are able to select a course that enables them to gain a Subject Excellence Endorsement.
