COURSE DESCRIPTION – ELECTIVE SUBJECT

The Electronics focus area provides opportunities for students to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to the electronics and associated industries.

 

MAIN FOCUS AREAS

The Electronics 1 core module develops knowledge and skills in the use of tools, materials and techniques related to electronics technologies. These are enhanced and further developed through the study of the Electronics 2 specialist module.

Practical projects should reflect the nature of the Electronics focus area and provide opportunities for students to develop specific knowledge, understanding and skills related to electronics-related technologies. These may include:

  • electronic circuits and kits
  • electronic-controlled devices
  • robotic projects

Projects promote the sequential development of skills and reflect an increasing degree of student autonomy as they progress through the course.
