Industrial Technology Years 7–10 Syllabus

INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGY – ENGINEERING

Engineered Mechanisms – Core Module 2

Students learn about:

Students learn to:

design principles and processes

Australian Standards relevant to engineering design

the factors influencing the design of mechanisms including:

material choices

energy sources

structures

past, present and future challenges in the application of engineering mechanisms

modify designs and follow a planned construction sequence in the development and production for projects relating to engineered mechanisms

observe standards in the development of engineered mechanisms

Workplace Communication Skills

(refer to Outcomes 5.4.1, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

reading and interpreting graphics

freehand drawing and sketching

pictorial and orthogonal drawings

report writing (including the preparation of documentation to support experimental work and the production of practical projects)

a range of computer software applications

industry terminology

understand and apply engineering data and terminology

sketch ideas for components or products

read, interpret and produce simple engineering drawings:

isometric

orthogonal

prepare reports outlining the development of experiments or projects identifying the materials, processes and equipment used

prepare and present reports using software and hardware including word processing and spreadsheets

Societal and Environmental Impact

(refer to Outcomes 5.7.1, 5.7.2 on page 13)

the impact of the focus area on society and the physical environment
