VCE Systems Engineering Study Design Consultation
The VCE Systems Engineering course provides an opportunity for students to develop skills and knowledge relevant to the design, operation, construction, assembly, maintenance, diagnosis, repair and evaluation of technological systems. The emphasis on hands-on learning and the application of scientific and mathematical concepts to real world problems is an excellent preparation for both engineering and technical studies.
To ensure VCE courses reflect best practice in teaching and learning, and the latest innovations in the discipline, they are reviewed every three to five years. The VCE Systems Engineering Study Design is currently under review. Over the past few months VSSEC Program Developer, Dr Naomi Mathers, has been part of an advisory panel comprising Systems Engineering teachers, University lecturers, industry representatives and representatives from the VCAA.
