#### Pre-requisites

A minimum C result for semester one, Year 10 English.

A minimum B result, Year 10 Mathematics

#### Co-requisites

Mathematical Methods

#### Subject Description

Engineering includes the study of mechanics, materials science and control technologies through real-world engineering contexts where students engage in problem-based learning.

Students learn to explore complex, open-ended problems and develop engineered solutions. They recognise and describe engineering problems, determine solution success criteria, develop and communicate ideas and predict, generate, evaluate and refine prototype solutions.

#### Assessment

Schools devise assessments in Units 1 and 2 to suit their local context. In Units 3 and 4 students complete four summative assessments. The results from each of the assessments are added together to provide a subject score out of 100. Students will also receive an overall subject result (A–E).

#### Summative assessment

---|---|---|---|

Summative internal assessment 1 (IA1): Project - folio | 25% | Summative internal assessment 3 (IA3): Project - folio | 25% |

Summative internal assessment 2 (IA2): Examination | 25% | Summative external assessment (EA): Examination | 25% |
