Engineering Studies is a 2 unit, two year course for Years 11 & 12.
University statistics have shown that students who have studied this subject tend to have a greater understanding and success in Engineering, Architecture, Applied Science and other Technology and Design related courses at University and TAFE.
The Engineering Studies course is directed towards the development and application of mathematical, scientific and technological skills and their integration with business and management. It provides students with skills, knowledge and understanding associated with a study of engineering, its practices and associated methodologies. The course aims to make practical sense of these principles as they apply to the design and manufacture of everyday items.
The Engineering Studies course is unique in that it develops knowledge and understanding of the profession of engineering.
Students will critically analyse objects to answer questions such as;
- how is it used and how has this affected its shape?
- how is it made, what is it made from and why?
- how could the object be improved?
- how can I draw it so someone else can make it?
The Engineering Studies program for both the Preliminary course and the Higher School Certificate covers eight modules in total. These modules are:
- Engineering fundamentals
- Engineered products
- Braking systems
- Biomedical engineering
- Civil structures
- Personal and public transport
- Aeronautical engineering
- Telecommunications engineering
