2. What is EGD?

2.1. Engineering Graphics and Design integrates cognitive and manipulative skills that are used to design and communicate graphically. The subject combines lines and symbols to render services and design processes and systems that contribute to economic growth and enhanced quality of life.

2.2. Derived from technical drawing. Teaches the graphical language which is primary for communication in the technological world.

2.3. Internationally acknowledged: EGD is known as Design Technology in England, Australia and New Zealand. In Northern Americas still as Technical Drawing.

2.4. The focus is mainly on: Civil Engineering (Architectural), Mechanical Engineering and some aspects of Electrical Technology.

3. Career Opportunities

3.2. Architecture, Civil Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Aviation, Maritime, Agricultural, Electronic Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Mining,

4. Learning Outcomes

4.1. LO4: Application of Knowledge.

4.2. LO3: Knowledge and Understanding.

4.3. LO2: Design Process.

4.4. LO1: Technology, Society and Environment.

5. Assessment Standards

5.1. The Assessment Standards gives the broad framework for the curriculum. Although the AS do not define the content and concepts, it remains the only guidelines from which defined content and concepts are derived.

6. Defined Content and Concepts

6.1. Civil Technologies, Mechanical Technologies and Some aspects of Electrical Technologies.

7. Work Schedules

7.1. Grade 10: Term 3

7.2. Grade 10: Term 4.

7.3. CAD.

8. Structure of Assessment

8.1. Continuous Assessment (CASS): (25%) 100, Tests 7,5%, ourse Drawings 7,5%, June and Sept (DR. 12) Exams 10%.

8.2. Practical Assessment Task (25%) 100: Part 1: ( The Design Process). Part 2: CAD/ Application Drawings

8.3. November Examinations: (50%). Paper 1: (Gr's 10 & 11=2hours)(Gr's 12=3hours. Paper 2: Gr's 10 & 11=2hours)(Gr's 12=3hours).

9. SBA

9.1. Gr. 10 Formal SBA Program.

9.2. Gr.11 Formal SBA Program

9.3. Gr.12 Formal SBA Program.

10. Methods of Assessment

10.1. 1. Course Drawings.

10.2. 2. PAT.

10.3. 3. Tests.

10.4. 4. Examinations.

10.5. 5. Assessment Rubrics for Course Drawings.

11. Examinations

11.1. 1. Grade 10

11.2. 2. Grade 11

11.3. 3. Grade 12

12. PAT

12.1. 1. The primary purpose is to assess Three subjective content topics namely, the Design Process and CAD drawings as well as the Presentation and quality of instrument drawings.

12.2. 2. Each Practical Assessment Task consists of two parts: Part 1: the Design Process, 2; Presentation Drawings (including CAD)

12.3. 3. Each learner must complete one PAT for every year of the FET phase.

12.4. 4. As the Pat is essentially Paper 3 of the examination, it must be completed under controlled conditions at the school!
