Level 3 Industrial Engineering

13IEG
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Ringwood

Recommended Prior Learning

Year 11 or Year 12 Engineering or Design Technology.



This course will further enhance the student’s ability to manufacture and assemble components to a high standard. The students will start the year continuing to develop their skills in CAD (Computer Aided Design - SolidWorks), creating 3D components, 2D instrumental drawings and assembly drawings of the Stirling engine, which they will be producing in term 2, 3 and 4. 

Students will be given the opportunity to manufacture and produce a project from a choice of a Stirling engine or a Steam engine.



Course Overview

Term 1
Students will start the year creating digital 3D components of a Stirling engine in CAD (Computer Aided Design - using Solidworks). These components will be assembled to produce a variety of views including a cross-sectional view. Students will also be converting the 3D components into into 2D instrumental drawings.

Term 2
1 period a week theory, 3 periods a week practical

Term 3
