For students who are creative, practical, and wonder how things work, studying DT is an excellent way to build upon and apply these skills, while increasing your knowledge of manufacturing and engineering. Students will gain technical abilities, which will help them to investigate and analyse the world around them and give them the opportunity to bring their imagination to life.
The DT curriculum is divided equally into theory and practical sessions. The active nature of DT is particularly suited to students who learn best in a practical environment. Designing and making projects allow students to gain a sense of achievement and improve confidence. There are numerous opportunities within the curriculum to learn new life-skills, which can be transferred into the home environment as DIY or the start of a new hobby.
The students who undertake DT will likely be the civil engineers, architects, product designers, mechanics and carpenters of the future.
