Year 12 Resistant Materials Technology (12RMT)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr L. Orpen

In this course, students learn how to design and manufacture products by working with various materials (wood, metal, plastics), components, tools and equipment. They learn about technological development and the design principles involved in traditional and modern manufacturing industry. They learn about manufacturing processes and techniques to develop manufactured (multi units as well as one off) products while undertaking technological practice.  Through on-going research and evaluation, they develop understanding of the role of materials and how to manipulate its capabilities to achieve a high quality functional technological product.  Students will also be working with CAD, 3D printing, and Laser Cutting. Assessments in this course are based on a collection of portfolio work. Y12 RMT is a compulsory course to enter Y13 RMT and at L3 is a University approved subject.
