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

DTO31P
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs T. Winter

This course is for 10 periods a week. 

Building a portfolio of work the students will complete a project and 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.

Careers in the working world: Kathmandu, Spark, Orion Health, Tait Communications, CerebralFix, Vodafone, Fonterra, SLI Systems.

Prerequisites for this course: A creative and inquisitive mind, problem solving and self managing competencies. It would be ideal to have completed a Yr12 course of learning with Digital Technologies, however, if you have an express interest in computers and programming in general, this is helpful. 




Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students may have the option to purchase a student licence of the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite through the school.
A removable USB drive maybe required depending on project and if working between home and school.


Recommended Prior Learning

Prerequisites for this course: A creative and inquisitive mind, problem solving and self managing competencies. It would be ideal to have completed a Yr12 DTP21F and/or DTM21F course of learning with Digital Technologies, however, if you have an express interest in computers and programming in general, this is helpful. 

Students who have not successfully completed DTM21F or DTP21F course will need to consult with Ms Winter.
