Design, Technology and Engineering

Design, Technology and Engineering students use the design and realisation process to engineer solutions for the development of products or systems. 

The subject is organised into four contexts:

  • Digital Communication Solutions
  • Industry and Entrepreneurial Solutions
  • Material Solutions
  • Robotic and Electronic Systems

These contexts provide students with opportunities to develop design thinking to investigate solutions, develop a plan, realise the solution, and evaluate the outcome.
