Level 2
Number of Credits: up to 24

Entry Recommendations: Open entry. SMC Foundation Diploma Materials Technology is an advantage. Students who have completed the Level 1 course will have priority entry.

Course Outline: The Level 2 Materials Technology course addresses the requirements of the technology achievement standards through two projects – Keep Me Warm and WOW.

In the “Keep Me Warm” project students build on knowledge gained in Year 11 in:

  • Brief development
  • Research
  • Garment construction 
  • Materials testing
  • Advanced garment construction

In the “WOW” project students develop skills in:

  • Time management
  • Concept drawing
  • Functional modelling in a range of materials
  • Creativity

Course Costs: Approximately $100-$250.  All costs of materials used in the construction of the design solution are the responsibility of the student.
