Technology


“Technology brings excitement, helps us look into the future and makes us brave enough to try and shape it.”

Overview

At Horowhenua College we aim for our 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 and learn to be practical, creative thinkers and problem solvers.
 

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, Carpentry, Design and Visual Communication, Creative Catering, Engineering, Digital Technology, Design Technology and Fashion Design.  We have three very well equipped machine areas for Automotive, Carpentry, Engineering and Design Technology, two fantastic workshops for Creative Catering, two computer suites for Digital Technology as well as specialised areas for Fashion Design and Design and Visual Communication.
 

Courses on offer

The wide range of NCEA courses offered at senior level by the faculty creates 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.
