You will develop your knowledge of programming principles and techniques as a foundation to the range of programming skills that are required within the manufacturing industry. This will include developing an understanding of essential mathematical and programming concepts that are used to define variables, data types, control structures and functions. The concepts of program flow and logic will also be introduced in preparation for practical interaction with manufacturing systems that you will encounter later in units such as ZAT116 Digital Control Systems. Through a series of guided exercises, you will write programming code to undertake simple tasks, trouble shoot existing code, and solve manufacturing related math problems computationally. You will be supported by substantial online learning resources that will enable you to extend your current level of understanding in these areas of knowledge through a combination of self-paced and formally assessed tasks.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.

* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2020 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2020 will be available from the 1st October 2020.
1. Explain and assess the uses and benefits of systems used in manufacturing and production industries
2. Apply relevant mathematical and programming principles and techniques to solve manufacturing problems
3. Apply program analysis, design, debugging, testing and documentation practices to resolve simple programming problems
4. Engage in self-regulated learning and self-evaluation to continuously develop technical understanding
