The area of Technological Design includes studies into a variety of related fields including Engineering, Architecture, Industrial Design, and more. Students design products to solve various challenges and use technical drawing, computer assisted drafting (CAD), 3D modeling, animation, and model-making to illustrate and explore their designs. In this course we use many different high-end software packages including; AutoCAD, 3ds MAX, Inventor, Revit, SketchUp and others. We make good use of our 3D Printers to print student-designed models. You can check our Technology Facebook Page or see our Twitter feed for pics of some of our 3D prints.
Drop by the Technological Design room and check out what we are up to.

Technological Design Course Descriptors
This course provides students with opportunities to apply a design process to meet a variety of technological challenges. Students will research projects, create designs, build models and/or prototypes, and assess products and/or processes using appropriate tools, techniques, and strategies. Student projects may include designs for homes, vehicles, bridges, robotic arms, clothing, or other products. Students will develop an awareness of environmental and societal issues related to technological design, and will learn about secondary and post-secondary education and training leading to careers in the field.
Grade 11 – TDJ 3MI – Mechanical / Engineering (College/University)
Grade 11 – TDA 3MX – Architectural Emphasis (College/University)
This course examines how technological design is influenced by human, environmental, financial, and material requirements and resources. Students will research, design, build, and assess solutions that meet specific human needs, using working drawings and other communication methods to present their design ideas. They will develop an awareness of environmental, societal, and cultural issues related to technological design, and will explore career opportunities in the field, as well as the college and/or university program requirements for them.
Grade 12 – TDJ 4MI – Mechanical / Engineering (College/University)
Grade 12 – TDA 4MX – Architectural Emphasis (College/University)
This course introduces students to the fundamentals of design advocacy and marketing, while building on their design skills and their knowledge of professional design practices. Students will apply a systematic design process to research, design, build, and assess solutions that meet specific human needs, using illustrations, presentation drawings, and other communication methods to present their designs. Students will enhance their problem-solving and communication skills, and will explore career opportunities and the post-secondary education and training requirements for them.
