This program has been developed with input from industry partners to prepare students for engineering with both ATAR and apprenticeship/traineeship pathways. Automation and big data analytics are transforming the manufacturing industry. It is now driven by digitisation, incorporates emerging technologies and spans the energy, space, transport, infrastructure, defence, defence manufacturing and other allied engineering industries.
The Applied Engineering program prepares students for these emerging Industry 4.0 pathways. Students will receive a badged trade uniform for the practical and out-of-school elements of the program. Students will be led in a high-challenge, high-expectation atmosphere combined with intensive mentoring and high levels of support to progress through the program. This will include mentoring and guidance beyond school for a period of six months to ensure a smooth transition into either apprenticeship or university pathways.
This program prepares students for exciting, rewarding and stable career opportunities for a broad range of engineering pathways, including electrical, mechanical, civil and advanced manufacturing.
This program also develops the high-level practical and academic skills that will be needed for the skilled trade pathways and apprenticeships of the future. This demand has grown significantly with the recent national investment ($183 billion) into modern digital shipbuilding and the flow-on effect into the allied engineering industries.
