Gain the skills and knowledge to communicate design concepts.
This course enables students to learn about a broad range of technical drawing skills and terminology. It is designed to follow on from Year 9 Technical Graphics and provide the necessary information to enable the student to further develop their knowledge and skills.
Students will design and create drawings in both 2 and 3 dimensions through a variety of processes including sketching, freehand rendering and Computer Aided Drafting (CAD). They will study the basic elements and principles of design, discover concept development strategies and explore techniques used by successful designers.
Technical Graphics is a subject suited to both male and female students as each project retains sufficient flexibility in design to cater to the interests of all participants.
Students will develop skills and knowledge in the following:
- drawing to Australian standards
- freehand sketching
- drafting software for computers
- two and three dimensional drawings
- laser cutting and 3D printing
- engaging in design processes and problem solving
- presentation of finished solutions and folios.
This course leads to: Year 11 Design (Technical Graphics) – General or ATAR
