The Industrial Arts Faculty introduces students to the world of technology through designing, making and evaluating. Students will learn about the technological world we live in by learning to work with a variety of materials and techniques that are the foundations of our built environment and engineered world.
Years 7-8 (Industrial Arts)
In Years 7 and 8 students do the compulsory Technology course. This is a 200 hour course where students learn about the basics of design, and also learn simple fabrication techniques across a variety of materials. Students also learn how to use a variety of computing applications such as word processors and Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) software.
Years 9-10 (Industrial Arts)
In Years 9 and 10 the Industrial Arts Faculty offers the practical course Industrial Technology. This course is offered in four streams: Electronics, Engineering, Metal and Timber. All involve making practical projects but the emphasis and materials for the projects depends on the strand chosen. For example in Industrial Technology Electronics most of the projects will involve making electronic circuits, while in Industrial technology Engineering the projects may be from various materials, but they are chosen to illustrate engineering concepts. We also offer Graphics Technology, which is a graphics course that explores all forms of technical drawing. Students will do pencil and computer drawing across the fields of engineering, architecture, and graphical design.
Senior Courses (Industrial Arts)
In Years 11 and 12 we offer Engineering Studies and Design and Technology.
