TEE 200 Course Outcomes - Level 2

  1. Students will be able to visualize how components are joined and how to communicate this through drawings and specifications.
  2. Students will understand the properties of wood as a material and how these properties impact design of projects using wood and wood products.
  3. Students will select and use subtractive processes in prototype construction: sawing, shaping, milling, turning, routing, etc.
  4. Students will select and use additive processes in prototype construction: joining, laminating, fastening, etc.
  5. Students will be able to identify, and use hand tools including tools for measuring, layout, sawing, planing, scraping, shaping, clamping, drilling, driving, and sharpening.
  6. Students will be able to accurately set-up and safely use woodworking machinery including the jointer, surface planer, table saw, panel saw, radial arm saw, power miter saw, bandsaw, thickness sander, mortiser, boring machine, lathe, and drill press.
  7. Students will have experience with the use of electric, pneumatic, and cordless power hand tools including routers, drills, and sanders.
  8. Students will be able to apply methods of clamping, gluing, and assembly, sanding, and finishing.
  9. Students will experience practical problem solving in working with industrial materials, tools, and machines.
  10. Students will experience the importance of caring, hard work, planning, initiative, and patience, in making a project that is well designed, includes quality workmanship, and is nicely finished.
