13ELEC

Level 3 Electronics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr F. Versteegen

This course is for students with an interest in electronics. It covers the areas required for people looking for jobs in the various electrical, electronic, engineering and telecommunications industries. 

We are making and programming micro-controller circuits with advanced semi-conductors. We're using digital and analogue data, and learn about logic circuits. We also do some theory work on reliability and product development. 

Students will learn what semi-conductor devices are made from and how that allows their functioning; They examine typical circuits for the semi-conductor devices we investigate; use wireless radio; research an occupation in the electro-technology industry and build a high class specification electronic product of their own design, ideally to solve a real world issue.

An independent working attitude is needed, as the course is very project based. 


Recommended Prior Learning

Reasonable success in Level 2 Electronics or Level 2 Physics, or by negotiation with the HOD/TIC.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Approximately $50.00. We are grateful to families making voluntary payments to assist with course specific costs.

Assessment Information

The assessments are Unit Standards, and different from the Y12 standards, these are mainly project based.

Pathway

This course could lead to a career as an electrician, or electronics engineer, either as a Trade, or at Uni.
