Students build upon the skills learnt in Year 9 and apply them to new design opportunities. This year's course becomes more specialised and there is an increased opportunity to blend traditional pen and paper design with new technologies like CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacture). Students will increasingly use Vectorworks and Solidworks CAD packages. Students will have exposure to creating products from laser cut parts.
This subject is essential for students who wish to study Design and Visual Communication at Level 1.
