Approx Cost:
Students will be expected to have printing credit available for this subject (suggest a constant of $5).
Technology Requirements:
A laptop is of benefit for this course
Entry Requirements:

12 or more credits from DTP101. Those who have a good mathematical ability and are confident in a wide range of common software may apply by negotiation with the HOLA.

Students will need their own headphones for this class.

Course Outline:

This course is designed for students who want to further develop their programming skills by developing a useful digital outcome. Students will extend their grasp of modular program design, creation and testing. An understanding of a range of computer science concepts will also be developed.

Topics will include:

  • Modular programming with methods and functions
  • Relational databases
  • Iterative (on-going) process to develop a digital outcome


  • Planning, documenting and creating modular computer programs
  • Indexed data structures such as lists
  • Testing procedures
  • Relational database design and development
  • Problem solving through the technological process

It is expected that students will engage with their projects beyond class time.

Where Does It Lead:

Year 13 Digital Technologies (Programming and Computer Science) DTP301.
