Design: 3D A Level

The course is centred on the following design areas: architecture, furniture and product. In your first year we will develop your skills and capabilities through a series of activities and short projects led by your teacher, culminating in your own extended design project. You will develop your appreciation of form and function and the use of a variety of materials and manufacturing processes. You will develop your abilities to draw, sketch, use CAD/CAM and prototype to communicate your ideas. You will become familiar with major design movements and the work of other designers in order to broaden your appreciation of good design. In your second year you will build upon the techniques learnt in the first year and will have the freedom to explore your own project work.

Grade 4 or above in GCSE Design and Technology preferable but not essential.
60% coursework and 40% practical exam.
This course is highly regarded by the universities as an excellent foundation for degree study in any design field. However it is particularly useful to those of you considering architecture, engineering, furniture, interior design, theatre design, and of course especially industrial and product design.
