This subject requires you to integrate an electrical and mechanical system to build a functional project. As the year progresses, you will also be required to introduce sensors to your project so it becomes closed loop. Examples of past projects include making a laptop cooler that regulates a fan turning on at a required temperature and fabricating a remote controlled lawn mower. All work

    completed must be documented and compiled into a digital portfolio that also contributes towards the assessment of this Unit of Study.
