2015-2016 Design and Drawing for ProductionDesign and Drawing for Production (DDP) is an approved course to meet the one unit of art/music requirement for graduation for all students, in addition to approved art education course or a CTE sequence. The DDP syllabus is aligned with Standard 5 of the Mathematics, Science and Technology Learning Standards and the Visual Arts Learning Standards. Only teachers certified in Art Education or Technology Education may provide instruction in DDP used to meet the art/music credit, which may then be used as part of the technology education curriculum or as part of the art education curriculum. To fulfill this requirement, the course of study must use the State developed DDP syllabus in its entirety.
The major focus of the course is learning how to take an idea through a design process that will eventually be manufactured or produced. As you learn about various aspects of engineering and engineering design, such as how engineers communicate through sketching and drawing, you will apply what you learn through various activities, projects, and problems. For example, after learning about the different techniques engineers use in determining how to design a product, you and your teacher will have the flexibility to explore the design and engineering processes to solve problems that are of interest to you.
The course covers the following:
The Role of an Engineer
The Design Process
Product Design and Sketching
Product Analysis and Improvement
Designing as an Engineer
In addition, you will use AutoDesk Inventor software, which is a state-of-the-art 3-D design software package, to help you design solutions to different design projects. Working in teams, you will learn about documenting your solutions, solving problems, and communicating your solutions to other students and members of the professional community of engineering and engineering design.
