Product Technology - Level 2

PTC2
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Ronowicz

Involves inventing/developing exciting new prototypes to address real needs and opportunity that exist within our community/society. Innovation is a key component going forward in most aspects of life and is the foundation of this course.
• Students work with stakeholders to develop a product idea.
• Students then model their design ideas using CAD software.
• Students will further develop skills such as MIG/TIG welding and laminating, in the development of a prototype
of their idea.
• This is tested “on-site” to evaluate its success.
• This course involves both academic and practical components
• Pathway to tertiary courses in Engineering, Design, Technology and Product Development.
