Welcome to the DT Department

Design and Technology together create the world we live in. The buildings we live and work in, the gadgets we use, the products we buy and the clothes we wear must all be researched, designed and manufactured using various technological processes. Our world depends on a constant supply of creative and innovative designers and engineers.

At Launceston College students gain experience with the basic principles of design and are introduced to a wide range of the technologies used in today’s world.
Students learn to combine creative thinking with practical and technological skills in order to design and make products that will meet human needs. They learn how to identify needs and opportunities, solve problems and how products can be developed to improve the quality of life.

Students have the opportunity to work across a range of material areas; timbers, metals, polymers, electronics, graphics, textiles and food and nutrition.
