11RMT

Year 11 Resistant Materials Technology (11RMT)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr D. Kenway

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 characteristics and performance properties of materials through on-going research and how techniques and process through testing and trialling are applied 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.Y11 RMT Course is the recommended entry into Y12 RMT and at L3 is a University approved subject.

Pre-requisites

None, although previous experience in a resistant materials technology course would be an advantage.
