In this course students will choose a focus from the areas of Industry and Entrepreneurial Solutions, Robotic and Electronic Systems, Digital Communication Solutions, Material Products or Digital Technologies. Within each focus there is learning about investigating and analysing the purpose, design features, materials or resources and production techniques.
Students will develop design briefs, deconstruct problems, and plan, explore and evaluate possible solutions. Within the digital technologies focus there will also be learning about analysing real world data sets. Students will opt to be assessed using either the SACE Design, Technology and Engineering or Digital Technologies frameworks.
