The Engineering Department at the College is buzzing with excitement as the laser cutters have arrived.
Year 10 engineering students, under the guidance of a very excited Engineering Teacher, Mr Ivan Lazar, have been undertaking the task of uncrating and assembling the new laser cutters in the engineering room.
‘Assembling the laser cutters is real-life engineering and a great opportunity for our youngest engineering students,’ said Mr Ivan Lazar, Engineering teacher at ECC.
Students can take Engineering as an elective subject in Years 9 and 10. In Years 11 and 12, students can opt to take Engineering as an ATAR or General subject.
The experienced Mr Ivan Lazar (B. Eng, M.Sc, GradDipEd) teaches Mechatronics at the College. Mechatronics is quickly gaining momentum as a sought-after course with graduates being offered scholarships and preferential entry to courses at local universities.
Mr Lazar has been a part of the team at Ellenbrook Christian College since 2014 and teaches Engineering, Mathematics and Physics. Before joining Ellenbrook Christian College, Ivan taught in the Singapore Education System, where he regularly ranked among the best by PISA and TIMSS. Before joining the Education system, Ivan racked up ten years of industrial experience in Singapore and the USA in final test and application in the fields of Analogue, Mixed Signal and Radio Frequency electronics.
Ivan is a passionate educator who is also a consultant to SCSA in Physics and Engineering and a sitting board member of the Engineering Studies Curriculum Advisory Committee.
