Video Transcript

Design, Technology and Engineering is fundamentally about converting ideas and raw materials into the products that we all need and use in our everyday lives.

Everything around us has been designed and made; for example cars we drive to the submarines and ships we build and the buildings we visit, live and work in. At Thebarton, Design Technology and Engineering provides you with an opportunity to explore ideas and to design and make things that solve everyday problems. You’ll learn how to use tools, machines and equipment to create designs and you’ll work with a range of tools and materials.

Design Technology and Engineering programs will help you with your career opportunities in manufacturing and construction and focus on design, technology, engineering, science and maths. For students who love maths and science, Design Technology and Engineering brings these subjects together so you can be creative, try new things and apply numeracy and science principles to produce a real physical item. Your literacy, numeracy, computer skills and scientific knowledge will be practically applied across all stages of learning at Design Technology and Engineering classes.

If you are thinking about the future careers, be aware that not only do Design Technology and Engineering subjects support students in developing skills aligned to many trades, but also provide clear connections with learning and industries they are connected to. Design Technology and Engineering subjects will open many doors and opportunities in a rage of industries.
