Excel Project Week 4


This week the Excel students spent time in the engineering department of Preston’s College.  The students got an insight and experience into working with CAD (Computer Aided Design) packages.  Senior Lecturer’s delivered a session on how CAD is used within engineering and designing of components ready for 3D printing and construction.  The session was also informative in linking the careers that are available within this sector to a love of design and the wage salaries that these positions can command. Next week the students shall continue within the engineering department looking at the production element and associated career pathways.




Students being given guidance on their 3D keyring designs which they will print next week.
