VCAA Systems Engineering Study Design Implementation Briefing

VCAA Systems Engineering Study Design Implementation Briefing

The VCAA is conducting a series of implementation briefings for the newly accredited study of Systems Engineering Units 1-4 during May and June. VSSEC is pleased to host the first of these workshops on Tuesday 22nd May (a tour of VSSEC will be offered after the workshop). If your school isn't currently offering VCE Systems Engineering, this is a great opportunity to explore how the subject combines science theory and manufacturing in a real world context. This subject is an excellent preparation for any students considering engineering at university.

Student work from 2011 will be on display at Melbourne Museum until the 15th July as part of the Top Designs exhibition.

Channel 7 News covered the exhibition. Check it out on the DEECD website.

The Implementation briefings will consist of:
• Information sessions that outline changes to the study design
• Activities that target key changes to the study
• Updates on the Assessment  Handbook

All workshops will be conducted from 4:30 - 6:30pm. The following workshops are available:
22nd May - VSSEC, Strathmore
29th May - Highvale SC, Glen Waverley
5th June - St Patricks College, Ballarat
7th June - Lowana College, Moe

There is no cost associated with attending a workshop. No CRT will be available. Each workshop will be registered with the Victorian Institute of Teachers (VIT) and can be accredited as a professional development activity.

Note: It is recommended that each participant bring the VCE Systems Engineering study design 2013-2017 to the briefing http://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/vce/studies/systemseng/SystemsEngineeringSD-2013.pdf

Participants must register to attend the briefing at : http://www.vcaa.vic.edu.au/vce/studies/systemseng/sysengform.html
