Course description

Because Resistant Materials and Graphic Products are options within the same course, they cannot be taken together.  Both courses extend students’ experiences in designing and making quality products in a specialist range of materials.

Students will be expected to become much more independent and self motivated to succeed in Product Design.  Coursework requires independent research and creative ability.

Unit 2 - A detailed study of design & technology in practice, 40% of AS (20% of A Level).

Entry requirements

Students should have achieved a grade B or above in GCSE Graphics or Resistant Materials.
