Industry is more technology driven and reliant on emerging technologies such as CAD/CAM, 3D Printing, laser cutting, etc. The technology used is changing rapidly and this course is designed to provide Industrial Technology and Design teachers with the knowledge and skills required to engage with 21st Century students. This technology is utilised not only in industry, but in a range of other applications such as medical, dental, and other scientific endeavours. The course also addresses other emerging technology applications such Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), Robotics and Electronics.

This course provides opportunities for pre-service teachers to develop the ability to utilise CAD software to create digital models which can be uploaded to prototyping and modelling equipment commonly used in schools such as 3D printers, laser cutters and other CAM technologies. Some coding and robotics are included in this area, as well as a requisite knowledge of electronics components and circuitry which underpins the understanding of modern technology. The course will also focus on the basic maintenance requirements of commonly used equipment such as 3D printers and laser cutters.
