Integrated Technology is linked directly to electronics. Learn basic electrical and electronics theory. Understand robotics concepts and create projects. Undertake computer and wireless networking and telecommunications cabling.
Early career starts are available for VCE and VCE VM students seeking a career in integrated technology. Students can include a VET Certificate II in Integrated Technology within a VCE or VCE VM syllabus.
The integrated technology trade is in high demand. Recent years have seen an increase in industry demand for employees skilled across the electrical, data communications, and engineering fields. It provides skills and knowledge in Digital Broadband, IT security systems, Cabling, Information & Communications Technology, and Telecommunications.
Integrated Technologies enables you to:/
Learn computer networking theory and practical tasks./
Learning coding, automation and robotics (Arduino, C++, VEX)./
Use CAD, programming of microcontrollers, robotics, 3D printing and process automation to develop products from conceptualisation to working prototypes./
Develop an understanding in solar powered energy systems.
The Certificate II in Integrated Technologies covers the knowledge and skills to increase job prospects in the Electrotechnology, Information Technology, Telecommunications, Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Industries. It is an introduction to the electrotechnology, computer networking, automation and advanced manufacturing industries. Students engage with multiple technologies and emerging techniques in the field of 3D printing, CAD, coding, automation and robotics.
The NCAT Integrated Technology program covers theoretical and practical training linked directly to the work of the Integrated Technology industries and includes: computer networking theory and practical tasks; coding, automation and robotics (Arduino, C++, VEX); use of CAD, programming of microcontrollers, robotics, 3D printing and process automation to develop products from conceptualisation to working prototypes and solar powered energy systems.
Practical project based tasks and design briefs are assessed by observation and questioning, and theory tests and written assessments using set criteria. Students are given a fair and adequate assessment process that includes multiple opportunities to demonstrate competency.
It is recommended participants have a minimum sound achievement of Year 10 Maths and English or equivalent and an aptitude for practical work. If you have any individual needs, please contact the college.
