Unit aim

Requires students to integrate and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and creativity developed and documented throughout their degree. Students design, plan and manufacture at least one major technology design project reflective of their chosen major teaching areas, demonstrating advanced knowledge and skills, WHS and risk management, together with an understanding of the ways in which documentation needs to be developed to demonstrate the design, manufacture and evaluation processes for major design projects. Students will prepare for a mock employment interview and make a presentation of their culminating project and TAS resource folder, compiled across their degree.
