CURRICULUM DESIGN

Students of the Bachelor of Education–Technical in Electrical Technology are required to complete a minimum of one hundred seventy-six units of study. The minimum number refers to the compulsory units and excludes the units that can be earned by taking the elective units. By covering the required units in every year level a semester, it would take participants four years to complete the program. The elective units offered in this program are Workshop/ Laboratory Management and Entrepreneurship Education.
Moreover, the students are engaged in twelve weeks (6 weeks each during their 3rd and 4th Years) of Practice Teaching in a recognized secondary school or technical/vocational colleges or centres in the country to harness their skills in their chosen field of profession.
In addition to the intensive training to mould a true Bosconian, In-Plant Training (IPT) is included in the Bachelor Program. It is composed of sixteen weeks (8 weeks each during their 1st and 2nd Years) industry experience. This is to give the students a firsthand experience in the world of actual work by being indentured in the different companies around the National Capital District. On a case-to-case basis, students are allowed to go for their IPT outside of Port Moresby especially if they need to do their industry experience in their sponsoring companies.
