DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES OUTCOMES 31P - Full Year - 10 periods per week

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs T. Winter

This course is for 10 periods a week. 

Students build a portfolio of work by completing a project to create a digital outcome for an end-user/stakeholder. 

Programming Focus: This course develops advanced understanding of complex concepts in Computer Science, and enables students to apply software engineering techniques to plan, prototype, implement and test complex computer programs. Programming knowledge and skills will be used to develop a digital outcome with Python. Other programming languages could be considered but you will need to consult with your teacher. This course will prepare students for a career in Computer Science or Software Engineering following further study at a University or other Tertiary Institution.

Please Note: This course caters for novice to advanced students and student centered learning is a focal point of this course and students are able to take both DTO31F and DTO31P. 

This course of learning is an approved UE subject. Scholarship Technology is offered in both media and programming.

Career Outlook: CAD Draftsperson, Computer Systems Engineer, Database Development & Administration, Design/Product Development Engineer, Electronics Engineer/Technician, Food Technologist, Game Developer, Geospatial (GIS) Analyst, Graphic Designer, ICT Multimedia Designer Developers, IT Support Professional, Product Evaluator, Robotics or Automation Engineer, Software Developer/Engineer, Software Tester, Telecommunications/Network Engineer, UX/UI Designers, Web Developer.
