Subject Description

Engineering include​s the study of mecha​nics, materials science and control technologies through real-world engineering contexts where students engage in problem-based learning. ​

Students learn to explore complex, open-ended problems and develop engineered solutions. They recognise and describe engineering problems, determine solution success criteria, develop and communicate ideas and predict, generate, evaluate and refine prototype solutions.​​

Assessment

Schools devise assessments in Units 1 and 2 to suit their local context. In Units 3 and 4 students complete​ four summative assessments. The results from each of the assessments are added together to provide a subject score out of 100. Students will also receive an overall subject result (A–E).
