Anyone done VET Engineering?
« on: July 03, 2019, 12:57:06 am »

Iím currently doing psych 1/2 but I donít want to continue into 3/4 next year. So Iím hunting for a new subject and came across VET studies ó more specifically VET Engineering. Iím currently doing systems engineering 3/4 and am hoping to study engineering in uni so it really draws me. The thing is, my school doesnít do VET, and I also donít know much about them. So several questions ó

1. Has anyone done VET Engineering before? What was your experience like? Would it be helpful for uni engineering?
2. How different is it from systems engineering?
3. As my school doesnít offer this subject, is there anywhere else where I can do it?
4. Does it contribute to the ATAR?

Also would love to hear from anyone who has done VET studies in general, not just engineering.


Sorry for all these questions, thanks in advance!!!

Hi Milanander! I donít have any experience with VET Engineering specifically, but Iíve done a VET before (Music Industry) so hereís my 2 cents.


1. Has anyone done VET Engineering before? What was your experience like? Would it be helpful for uni engineering?

VET subjects in general are considerably more vocational than academic based, and are more suitable for people hoping to go straight into the workforce upon leaving school rather than uni. So I wonít bank on it being too helpful for uni. But it might be really helpful once you start working in the engineering field.


2. How different is it from systems engineering?

Canít help you too much here, though Iíd assume that systems engineering would have more theory and less practical components than its VET counterpart.

Also, upon the completion of any VET subject you get a handy certificate which you can attach to your CV. You donít get this with the usual VCE subject.


3. As my school doesnít offer this subject, is there anywhere else where I can do it?

Yep! You can do it at another school which offers the course, or you can do it at a centre/institute which offers it.


4. Does it contribute to the ATAR?

Yep it does! If you did SCORED assessments for your VET study, then you will receive a study score out of 50 just like all VCE subjects, which then gets scaled accordingly and contributes either fully (if itís in your top 4), or 10% (if itís in your bottom two).

If you did UNSCORED, it contributes to your ATAR by taking the lowest study score in your top 4 as a 10% increment. It used to be calculated through the average of your top 4, but VTAC changed this recently.


Hopefully someone who has done engineering will be able to offer a deeper insight soon! Good luck!! ^-^
