INDUSTRIAL DESIGN & FABRICATION

BECOME AN INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER OR MACHINIST

This is a year-long program.  The fall semester focuses on precision measurements, CNC (Computer Numerical Control) programming and various machining.  Students will learn skills by designing and building a variety of projects, some of which are self-selected, and having input into each aspect of fabrication, purchasing, machining, construction, and testing.  Design concepts such as aerodynamics and ergonomics will also be researched, with opportunities to specialize in areas of design, machining, and programming.  In the spring, students will learn concepts and skills in machining, welding, soldering, and brazing. Opportunities to specialize in areas of design and welding go hand-in-hand with participation in whole-class projects and self-selected projects of the students’ own interest.  Year two students complete complex independent projects utilizing advanced skills in trigonometry, coding, programming, machining, and welding.  Select students may compete at a high level at Skills USA.
