Human beings have developed skills in managing their environment, designing and constructing systems to make use of both biological and physical resources. The outcomes of this resource use have also brought about the need to consider carefully the sustainability with which these resources are used, their impact on the living world and ethical questions of resource use. In this subject, students will consider both natural and constructed structures and systems and their impact, integrating the contributions of biology, chemistry, environmental sciences, engineering and physics. Careful development of students’ academic skills will be embedded in this subject.
To enable students to apply the methods of science, technology and engineering systems to understanding structures, production and transmission of electrical energy and transformation of various forms of energy into mechanical energy, production and distribution of food and develop their capacity to:
