LEVEL 2 HARD MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY ​2TECH   

What is this course about? The emphasis in this subject is to gain an understanding of technological products and their design using analysis,  research, modelling and prototyping. This knowledge is used to conceptualise new and innovative ways to solve real  world issues. We aim to provide students with the skills base to critically evaluate, design innovative solutions and  produce effective prototypes. Hard Materials Technology is a creative, thought provoking subject that requires students  to acquire practical and design related skills to produce solutions to issues using a variety of resistant materials.  What sorts of things will I do?  Students will develop the ability to conceptualise design solutions through a variety of modes and media. Freehand  sketching, computer aided design, 2D and 3D modelling and prototyping using either traditional human methods of  construction or applying new ways computer aided manufacture such as laser cut or 3D printed to address the issue.
