Industrial Technology - Engineering provides opportunities for students to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to engineering and its associated industries. Assigned practical projects promote the sequential development of skills and reflect an increasing degree of student autonomy as they progress through the course.
Practical projects may include:
· a range of devices and appliances
· electronic and mechanical control systems.
· programmable microcontrollers
· robotics projects
· small structures
· small vehicles
The Year 9 core module includes common content and topic content that develops knowledge and skills in the use of tools, materials and techniques related to Engineered Structures and Engineered Mechanisms. These are enhanced and further developed in Year 10 (as determined by the teacher) through the study of two of the four specialist modules in:
· Alternative Energy
· Control Systems
· School-Developed Module
In Years 9 and 10, students may study no more than two Industrial Technology Focus Areas i.e., Engineering and Timber or Engineering and Mulitmedia or Timber and Multimedia.
