13DTE

Year 13 Digital Technology - Electronics (13DTE)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Rounds

In this course students develop on advanced skills and techniques to design and develop an electronics product using embedded technology. Students learn to design, construct and program complex electronic systems, using a variety of sensors and output components including Bluetooth and wireless technology.  Wide Area Network (WAN) Technology is also taught as part of hardware and infrastructure and IOT (Internet of Things) using ESP32 Development board. Students use CAD, 3D printing, laser cutting technology to design and make an electronics product. 

Students will be working on individualised and specialist projects, therefore must be prepared to manage their learning program on a weekly basis. 

Assessments in this course are based on a collection of portfolio work with photos and video evidence to demonstrate the functionality of the electronics product. The course has a strong focus on programming and electronics hardware.
