PTE302: Industrial Production (2012-2013)
CURRICULUM PROGRAM: Career and Technical Education
COURSE TITLE: Industrial Production
CALENDAR YEAR: 2012-2013
GRADE LEVEL: 9-10
COURSE LENGTH: 36 weeks
Major Concepts/Content: The Productions and Manufacturing course introduces students to production and manufacturing systems. Included in this course is the use of two-dimensional drawing and three-dimensional modeling. Through the use of the Internet as a tool, students will explore the wide range of production and manufacturing technologies. Students will practice safety while performing skills and operations related to production and manufacturing. This course is strongly recommended for students aspiring to become engineers, architects, and engineer technicians.
Major Instructional Activities: Instructional activities are provided in the laboratory setting, using hands-on experiences with tools, equipment, and materials related to course content. Students will be required to plan, design, and produce projects; develop solutions to problem solving activities, present ideas and information orally and in writing; investigate content-related occupations; assume leadership roles and work cooperatively. Students will be required to work in teams as they plan, design, and produce projects. They will also develop solutions to problem solving activities, maintaining a technical journal; produce a portfolio, and present ideas and information orally and in writing. Students will assume leadership roles and work cooperatively.
Major Evaluative Techniques: Students will be evaluated through laboratory content, safety, and procedural equipment tests. Projects will be analyzed and evaluated for neatness, originality, creativity, accuracy, and understanding of concepts. Written and oral reports will be graded for content and form. In addition, the students will be evaluated on their ability to cooperatively work together and solve problems.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of the course, students should be able to
- Maintain safety practices.
- Research the evolutionary development of manufacturing and production processes in industry and technology.
- Employ principles of design and physics to prototype development/production.
- Investigate methods of acquiring, transmitting, storing, and using information in industrial process.
- Use math and scientific principles and information to solve problems.
- Demonstrate the proper use of common tools, machines, and processes of technological systems.
- Apply quality control techniques and processes to the development of a product.
- Formulate a life plan considering one's own abilities, interests, and beliefs.
