NCEA Level 1 Computer-Aided Design

Course Description

Use computer modelling, laser cutting and 3D printing to create your own designs. The products around us are increasingly being made by machines, so someone needs to know how the machines work. This course builds your computer design skills for the future of the design and manufacturing industries. This could work towards careers in product design, architecture, engineering, construction, or fashion- or maybe something that hasn’t been invented yet! This course will involve practical projects, taking your designs from concept sketches to computer models, to physical objects.
