13RMT

Year 13 Resistant Materials Technology (13RMT)

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 social, environmental and technical acceptance of products while undertaking technological practice.  Through on-going research, testing, trialing and evaluation, they apply their technological knowledge to achieve a high quality functional technological product.  Students will also be working with CAD, 3D printing, CNC machining, casting and Laser Cutting. 13RMT is a University approved subject. 

Project Options: 

1.    Electric Kart/trike/cycle 

2.    Modern Furniture

Students can select a range of standards from the table below equating to a minimum value of 14+ credits.
