The Associate Degree in Engineering Technology (AD026) is a two year program offered in the School of Vocational Engineering. This program provides training in basic engineering skills, and can lead to a pathway into other engineering degrees. It is a first year, first semester course and students require a lot of support as they struggle with the volume and complexity of the text based learning resources.

The team redesigned the course to make it more activity based and engaging for students. This included the development of a self-paced learning guide and a Wiki based learning tool to enable students to work at their own pace to develop a better understanding of engineering materials and their application.
