Engineering Studies 2
This course extends students' knowledge of the Engineering studies, teaching and learning and curriculum development in engineering research skills and industry knowledge with a specific focus on engineering materials, testing, hydraulics, pneumatics and aerodynamics. As part of this course students will extend their knowledge of civil structures, transport, lifting devices, aeronautics and telecommunication. They will explore engineering materials and mechanics, history and the scope of the engineers' professions from electrical, telecommunication and aeronautical engineering. Students will focus their study from the dimensions of: engineering materials, testing, hydraulics, pneumatics, and aeordynamics and develop engineering reports which are appropriate for the stage 6 NSW Engineering Studies syllabus.

2.Explore through experimentation materials and testing relating to engineering concepts used in the stage 6 Engineering syllabus.
The course content is divided into three modules: Engineering materials; Engineering testing; and Engineering hydraulics and pneumatics.
The study of engineering materials will involve an introduction to materials inluding an:
introduction to the role of materials to engineer, a description of material properties - inservice and manufacturing, the structure of materials - effect on properties - property modification, the linking of material properties to material applications and corrosion.
Skills will be linked to the study of specific materials and material shaping and forming processes will include examples and applications of metals, polymers, certamics and composites.
The study of engineering testing will involve an introduction to testing and the role of the material and product testing in engineering. Skills will be linked to specific testing in destructive (tension, compression, sheer, impact, proving)and non-destructive areas (x-ray, ultrasonic, modelling, electrical and magnetic).
The principles of engineering hydraulics and pneumatics will also be studies.
This study and skill development will promote an understanding of: household appliances, landscape products, braking systems, bioengineering, civil structures, transport systems, aeronautical applications and telecommunications.
