Students/ākonga undertaking studies in this department will have a keen interest in designing and making products that are fit-for-purpose in terms of the intended use, the end user and the environment in which it will be sited.
Our teaching and learning programmes simultaneously allow ākonga/students to:
Develop an understanding and application of a creative design process that leads to the creation of products that are a fit for purpose, for ether individuals, whānau/families, or communities.
Develop knowledge about materials, techniques and processes which are intrinsic to their application and use.
Develop practical skills required to manipulate and test a range of materials and construction techniques, including computer-controlled technologies such as Laser and plasma cutters and routers.
Develop an understanding of sustainable practices.
Develop an understanding of the Mātauranga Māori Principles and explore the importance of tikanga Māori and traditional Pacific practices to understand how technology outcomes impact on people, hapū, and iwi.
Develop good health and safety practices in a workshop environment.
Our teaching and learning programmes are designed to prepare students/ākonga for their future pathways, whether that be further tertiary study, a modern apprenticeship, or a startup business.
