Stage 6 Engineering Studies

This subject develops invaluable skills and knowledge to be used in future studies of Engineering, Building Science, Project Management or related TAFE studies and technical vocations. It involves the study of materials (metals, plastics, ceramics and composites) and the use of graphics and calculations to solve engineering problems.

Wherever possible practical activities support theoretical knowledge using computer simulations and computerised materials testing equipment. In each year students are asked to solve a practical problem by constructing a working model as a solution. 

Several modules are studied including Engineering Fundamentals, Landscape Products, Braking Systems, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Structures, Personal and Public Transport, Aeronautical and Telecommunications Engineering. These allow us to investigate the inter-relationship of materials, their physical and mechanical properties and aspects of technical drawing.

The study of the role of Engineers and the preparation of Engineering Reports form an integral part of this course.
