Proposed Sequence of Units (Click on unit title for details)
We live in a digital dependent society. Students who study Information Technology will become empowered to participate on an academic, vocational and personal level. Many of the units available at Hawker College involve the use of technology to enrich learning. Other courses dependant on technology inclusion are Technology Design, Graphic Design, Printing and Digital Photography.
Information Technology (A/T/V)
This course is designed for a broad range of students, from those who wish to go on to programming or computer engineering, work on developing websites, design games, through to hardware support and to those who just want to get a general overview of emerging applications in this field.
The course has 3 main streams, the Programming stream and the Applications stream.
The Applications stream may be undertaken by students at T or A level, it places an emphasis on Web and database applications. Databases hold the information and the Web is the tool for accessing it, we believe that students with a solid grounding in these applications will find them broadly applicable to nearly all areas of life after college, be it further study or straight into the work force.
The Programming stream is available to students at a T level only; it is designed for those students who intend to progress to the study of the information sciences at a tertiary level. It will provide an insight into information technology and emphasises the structure of information technology systems. Students in this stream may also wish to take some units from the applications stream.
The Networking stream is available to students at a T level only; it covers material from the CISCO networking curriculum and is suitable for students who wish to pursue a career in networking or develop skills in installing/upgrading hardware and software.
Because the course is also vocational, students may also gain competencies towards a vocational certificate in IT (Cert 1 & Cert II), which may give you advanced credit towards units at tertiary institutions such as CIT. Students wishing to obtain the full certificate will be required to complete some units over and above the normal course requirements as well as a work placement. These additional units will relate to issues such as occupational health and safety, which are specific to the V course
