Figure 1: The organisation of content for Enterprise Computing 11–12 Syllabus

Image long description: This is a diagram outlining the organisation of content for the Enterprise Computing 11–12 Syllabus. Content is listed in boxes. Interactive media and the user experience, Networking systems and social computing, and Principles of cybersecurity fall under Year 11 on the left. Data science, Data visualisation, Intelligent systems and Enterprise project fall under Year 12 on the right. In the middle is Learning through project work, with lines coming from this box and encircling the content. Surrounding all content of the diagram is a line which is joined at the bottom by a box labelled, Skills. This demonstrates that Skills is being both developed and used in all focus areas.

Year 11 course structure and requirements

Enterprise Computing course specifications

Enterprise Computing Course Specifications are an integral part of the course content for Year 11 and Year 12 and indicate the depth of study required for some concepts in the Enterprise Computing 1112 Syllabus. The Enterprise Computing 1112 Syllabus must be applied in conjunction with the Enterprise Computing Course Specifications.
