NCEA Level 2 Materials Technology: Product Design - Metal

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: S. Stephen

Recommended Prior Learning

10 credits in Level 1 Materials Technology including Achievement Standard 1.3 or by consultation with HOD.             

12MTM and 12MTW are similar courses that cover many of the same standards, it is not possible to choose both.

This course follows on from Year 11 and leads to Year 13, and further study at Polytechnic and University. This is an Achievement Standard course. Students solve an design problems by following a design process and then generate a design solution, justifying it's selection to the stake-holders. Advanced practical skills are developed and the assessed in a project, working predominantly with Metal.

The Standards covered in this course are the same, or similar to, those covered in the Wood course.  You cannot do both.

Assessments are tailored to individuals learning needs.

Students will complete a maximum of 21 credits and the course will be designed to suit the needs and interests of the individual students.
