Premier’s VCE Award

Xavier Cohen, a student undertaking a 22586VIC Certificate II in Integrated Technologies at NCAT has recently won a prestigious Premier’s VCE Award for his studies after achieving a study score of 48 and the highest in the state.

Komatsu Australia visits NCAT

Tim Roberts, Technology Solutions Trainer at Komatsu Australia recently visited NCAT to speak to our Integrated Technologies students about intelligent machine control and automation. Our students learnt about how large earthmoving equipment can now be controlled in the lounge room of your home using Virtual Reality (VR) headsets and hand controllers.

Tim also spoke about careers, industry and training pathways and was impressed with what our students were learning and saw first-hand the progress they’d made on their own automation projects. NCAT and Komatsu have now formed a partnership around the delivery of the Integrated Technologies qualification and this reinforces how closely NCAT works with industry partners to deliver industry relevant training that maxamizes students employability skills.
