Golden Grove High School’s digital design class receives a visit from the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride designers

Mon, 11 October, 2021

In September, year 10 and 11 students from Golden Grove High School put theory into practice during their digital design class, when they were shown through the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project’s Computer Aided Design (CAD) files by PTPA designers, John and Steve.

In class, the students have using Autodesk Inventor and Revit (industry standard modelling programs) to learn how to create small 3D models of buildings.

Our designers walked students through the type of complex and sizeable structures that can be created within 3D programs and students were able to navigate through different elements of the Park ‘n’ Ride via the 3D model.

The designers talked to students about the growing industry of digital design and various pathways into the industry, including newly created digital engineering apprenticeships.

The diversity of options in the digital design industry and growing career prospects for school leavers is something to ignite curiosity and excitement for future career opportunities.
