Entry requirements

Admission to our undergraduate degree programs usually requires successful completion of a senior secondary school qualification similar to the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the highest educational award in New South Wales schools.

Industrial Technology Engineering

Study an additional teaching area in Industrial Engineering Technology for Secondary Education at UON

Study an additional teaching area in Industrial Engineering Technology to learn about materials science, electronics, mechanics and civil engineering. You’ll study a range of courses which will prepare you to teach junior and senior high school classes.

Teachers of engineering studies design lessons focusing on the various characteristics of engineering. You’ll engage your students with theoretical and practical learning, facilitating creative development through design tasks, and analytical competency with written assessments. Your training will involve the study of specialist courses in engineering, as well as the high school curriculum.

What jobs can you get with an additional teaching area in Industrial Engineering Technology?

Study Industrial Engineering Technology as one of your core teaching areas to learn how to teach junior and senior secondary school engineering courses. Lead your secondary students to bright futures by introducing them to this exciting field and providing a strong initial foundation in a study area of growth.

Undertaking Industrial Engineering Technology as an additional teaching area within your Bachelor of Education (Secondary) at UON develops your skills and knowledge within a robust field, ensuring that your specialist skills will pave the way for careers in both teaching and non-teaching professions. Graduates may find work in:

  • High school teaching
  • Educational policy development
  • Research and analysis

When you graduate, you’ll have gained the qualifications needed to become a high-demand technology teacher. You can enhance your employment opportunities by majoring (first teaching area) in an additional teaching area. Engineering teachers will find value in studying Business Studies, Design Technologies, Industrial Technology, Mathematics, Modern History and Physics teaching alongside their additional teaching area. Your specialist skills will pave the way for careers in both teaching and non-teaching professions.

Suitable for education and teaching students with:

  • An interest in learning more about specialties within engineering, such as mechanics, CAD drawing, and civil engineering.
  • Goals to inspire and educate young students in the study of engineering principles and practice.
  • A commitment to designing engaging and inclusive lesson plans, focused around both theoretical and practical learning experiences.

What do you learn in an Industrial Engineering Technology additional teaching area?

We’ve designed our Industrial Engineering Technology additional teaching area to prepare you to educate junior and senior Engineering classes. As part of this additional teaching area you can study courses in:

  • Engineering Mechanics: In first year you will focus on learning the principles of engineering and mechanics. Familiarity with this foundation knowledge will be assumed when you study advanced courses later in the additional teaching area. You’ll also study the mechanical drawing tools and techniques that are essential to engineering design, such as CAD programs.
  • Engineering Technology: In this stream of courses you’ll study the materials and practices used to produce engineering designs. You’ll learn about the assembly of machine components, studying concepts such as limits, fits and geometric tolerance. Students will also be taught how to identify design problems, develop solutions, and represent their ideas in traditional and digital modes.
  • Design Contexts: In addition to the principles of engineering and mechanics, students will also study courses in design theory. You’ll learn how design informs the practice of engineering, including the concepts of functionality and aesthetics. Your courses will teach you how to strike a balance between the two when producing your drawings.

Which degrees include this additional teaching area?

The Bachelor of Education (Secondary) and any associated degree program allows you to study an additional teaching area in Industrial Engineering Technologies.
