Manufacturing

 

Principles of Manufacturing

In this course, students gain knowledge and skills in the application, design, production and assessment of products, services and systems. Student will explore the various fields in metalworking and will receive experience in the use of precision and non-precision tools as they learn the basic operations of manufacturing.  Students will be involved in the problem solving process, safety with hand tools and power tools, familiarization of different welding and machining techniques.  Special attention will be given to the various careers available in the machine shop and welding industries.  Klein Oak HS will emphasize the welding process.

 

Welding

This two-year program prepares students to be skilled workers and to understand, perform and supervise or inspect a wide variety of welding processes.  These processes include gas welding, brazing, flame cutting, plasma cutting, shielded metal arc welding and resistance welding. Introduction to gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding and flux core welding will also be explored. Students will develop a basic understanding of design for welding fabrication, an understanding of the cost and economics of various types welding. Students are introduced to the methods of nondestructive and destructive inspection of welds and welded products. Students will also develop math and problem solving skills used in the welding field. The nationally accredited CONTREN learning series, approved by the National Center for Construction Education and Research and the Associated Builders and Contractors, greater Houston chapter is a supplemental curriculum resource for this course. This class meets for two periods each school day at Klein Oak High School. AWS certification is available upon passing of Structural Steel D1.1 codebook.  Students will be responsible for purchasing materials or assessed a fee associated with this course.

 

Advanced Welding

The advanced welding program prepares students to be skilled workers and to understand, perform and supervise or inspect a wide variety of welding processes.  These include gas welding, flame cutting, plasma cutting, arc gouging, shielded metal arc welding, gas metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding and flux core welding. Students will develop a basic understanding of design for welding fabrication, an understanding of the cost and economics of welding of various types. Also introduced are the methods of nondestructive and destructive inspection of welds and welded products and an understanding of auxiliary equipment used in the process, such as jigs, fixtures, and tools and equipment related to welding. Students will develop math skills and problem solving skills used in the welding field. The nationally accredited CONTREN learning series, approved by the National Center For Construction Education & Research and the Associated Builders & Contractors, greater Houston chapter, is the co curriculum for instruction in the course. Classes meet for two periods each school day at Klein Oak High School. AWS certification is available upon passing of Structural Steel D1.1 codebook. Students will be responsible for purchasing materials or assessed a fee associated with this course.  Advanced Technical Credit and Tech Prep college credit are available through community colleges in Texas.

Problems and Solutions in Trade & Industrial Education

A project-based learning experience developed by a student or group of students, teacher and an interdisciplinary mentor team.  The project provides opportunities for an in-depth study of at least one aspect of an industry in the trade and industrial program area.  The student or group demonstrates the ability to utilize a variety of resources, advanced technology, and communication skills in the development and presentation of a project. This project-based course may allow a student to meet one of the Distinguished Achievement Program advanced measures. Incoming 9th graders of 2009-2010 will receive advanced grade points for this class.
