Industrial Technology

Industrial technology is a dynamic and
diverse course of study aimed at a wide range of students who want to learn about materials, tools and processes used in manufacturing, engineering, woodworking and design. We cater for a wide range of students who may be looking for trade apprenticeships, tertiary study or who may have an interest in just making things.
We offer students an active and physically engaging learning process by providing practical and interesting task activities. We have well-equipped industry standard facilities that have been developed to cater for both hand tool use and modern manufacturing techniques where heavy emphasis is placed on fixed and portable power tools. Industrial Technology is all about Learning by Doing.
Whether it is a wood, metal, plastics, electronics or a computer based graphics task, the focus is about designing, making and evaluating the outcome.
In Industrial technology, outcomes are a physical reality and not just a concept. Whether it is the use of materials or a virtual outcome, we are about seeing, touching and interacting with the end result.
“People engage in product design as commercial, industrial or personal activities to solve real world problems, satisfy human needs and wants, and capitalise on opportunities” (QSA, 2011)
