Technology and theory of research 1

The young engineer

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • plan and build a fixed or mobile construction that has a specific function
  • use three-dimensional drawings or sketches in developing constructions
  • use different materials and forms for joining these, and give grounds for choice of materials and construction methods, based on material properties and the function of the construction itself
  • use sensors and guidance-and-control systems in connection with experiments and constructions
  • document and evaluate the construction's physical properties and functionality by means of measurements and simple calculations

The young researcher

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • give an account of how scientific projects are planned, carried out and followed-up before being published
  • plan, carry out, analyze and document systematic measurements for noise, air pollution, indoor climates and water quality, and elaborate on and discuss climatic and health-related effects

Technology, science and society

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • elaborate on and discuss ethical, environmental, cultural and political aspects of technological development
  • describe the historical development of technological devices, explain how some work, and elaborate on and discuss their application and use in society
  • give an account of the development and production of a technological product, and evaluate the product's user-friendliness, developmental possibilities and environmental effects
  • describe the principles and workings of some modern instruments within the field of industry, health or research, and give an account of their usefulness or possible harmful effects
  • map out and present practical use of science and mathematics in a local company or institution

Design and product development

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • give an account of the function of common components in electronic circuits, and recognize the components in a circuit
  • make electronic circuits by soldering components, and simulate and test the circuits
  • design and develop products that have a defined function and contain electronics
  • document and present design processes, from idea to finished product
  • give grounds for material choice in products, and evaluate its form and function, environmental consequences and aesthetics, and show possibilities for improvement of these products
  • carry out measurements with, or test their own product, and evaluate the quality of the product with a view to functionality
