Why Take Tech Design?

Items we use in everyday life have been created by people with technological design backgrounds. There are a variety of industries in which students can work including, architectural firms, construction companies, machining companies, and more. 

Recommended Prerequisite: TTI1O
This course requires students to design and develop innovative products and services. Students will learn the following: how to identify user needs related to specified design problems; the physical properties of selected materials and their application in product design; techniques to create physical products and services; various presentation techniques; how to test and evaluate design solutions, and the implications of technology on the development of products or services. They will also become aware of design-related careers. Students will use conventional techniques and Computer Aided Design (CAD) using Auto CADKEY software.

GRADE 11 TECHNOLOGICAL DESIGN - Univ/Coll. Prep. Recommended

Prerequisite: TDJ2O. Students may select only ONE of: TDJ3MD MECHANICAL DESIGN TDJ3MK ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN
These courses require students to apply the principles of technological design to challenges in communications, manufacturing, electronics, transportation, architecture, industrial and consumer products, health and safety equipment, and environmental services. Students will identify user needs, estimate labour and material costs, analyze material characteristics, and illustrate design solutions, using traditional and computer-based methods. They will also acquire the basic design skills required for post-secondary studies in engineering, manufacturing, architecture, and construction.
