Technology

 

Overview

At Horowhenua College the aim is for students to develop a broad technological literacy that will equip them to participate in society as informed citizens and give them access to technology related careers. We provide all of our students with the chance to explore technology across a range of disciplines and year levels.

Facilities

Technology Faculty have multi-skilled and experienced staff, well-resourced learning environments and well planned, progressive programmes to ensure all students are given the best possible opportunities to succeed in this area of their education

Technology has its own building with specialised teaching areas. We cater for students interested in studying Automotive Engineering, Business Studies, Carpentry, Graphics, Creative Catering, Engineering, Information Literacy and Textiles.  We have three very well equipped machine areas for Automotive, Carpentry and Engineering, two fantastic workshops for both Catering and Technology, two computer suites as well as a specialised area for Textiles and Graphics.

Courses on offer

The wide range of NCEA courses offered at senior level by the faculty, create career path opportunities for students. In the present NZ economic climate, where the country has a growing deficit of well qualified trades and industry personnel, it is important that students take advantage of what our college has on offer in the Technology Faculty.
