Manufacturing and Architectural Technology

INTRODUCTION TO CONSTRUCTION & MANUFACTURING TECHNOLOGY     
Semester
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12             

This course is designed to familiarize students with the fields and components of manufacturing and construction technology.  They will learn the proper use and safe operation of tools.  Individual projects will provide an avenue for the exploration of project development in relation to prototyping, which will consist of two personal wood projects.  They may also build a scale- model frame house and a scale-model of a truss bridge. Grades are based on quizzes, projects and class participation.  This course is a must for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade. Approximate cost of supplies is $15. 

WOOD TECHNOLOGY II                                                     
Semester
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12      

This course is designed to further the knowledge and skills learned in Construction & Manufacturing Technology.  Students will construct a project of choice with specific guidance from the teacher.  This course is recommended for any student interested in developing his or her woodworking experience beyond Construction and Manufacturing Technology. Grades are based on quizzes, projects and class participation. This course is a must for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade.  Approximate cost of supplies for the course is $25.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN I                                                
Semester
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12                          

This course begins with a brief introduction to the history of architecture followed by an in-depth study of design for a residential home.  Starting with designs from sketches, all drawings are created from a computer using the industry's standard AutoCad REVIT and all related wares created by AutoDesk.  Some of the projects will be designing a kitchen, and a complete set of residential floor plans. This course is a must for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade. Grades are based on drawings, quizzes, tests and class participation.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN II                                                           
Semester
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12                                                                 

This course pursues further study in designing a home and commercial buildings using AutoCad (REVIT).  Students will learn about one- and two-point perspectives, plot plan and a complete set of details including electrical and HVAC plans. Students will work in a real life scenario creating and working in a mock architects firm. This course is a must for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade. Grades are based on drawings, tests and class participation.

ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN III                                             
Semester
Grades 10, 11, 12                                    

This course may include the construction of a 1/48th scale model of their home designs from the Architectural Design I and II classes, or the student may instead design a home using a very sophisticated 3-D modeling software and then generate a walk-through animation of their home, plus create a total set of plans from that 3-D model.  Students will explore and research different careers related to architecture. This course is a highly recommend for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade. 

TECHNICAL COMPUTER-AIDED DRAFTING AND DESIGN                              
Semester
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12                                                                         

This course is designed to familiarize the student with operations of mechanical engineering drawings, which include multi-view projections, dimensioning, sectioning and elementary machining operations.  All drawings will be completed using computers and AutoCAD (Inventor) software.  The final third of the semester will consist of student use of a 3-D modeling program.  This course is highly recommended for anyone considering engineering or a professional trade.
