Course Description

The study of Graphics Technology provides students with knowledge of the techniques and technologies used to graphically convey technical and non-technical ideas and information. Students are introduced to the significance of graphical communication as a universal language and develop the ability to read, interpret and produce graphical presentations that communicate information using a variety of techniques and media.

What students learn

Students learn to design, prepare and develop graphical presentations using both instrument drawing and computer-aided design (CAD). They learn to interpret and analyse graphical images and presentations to develop an understanding of the use of graphics in industrial, commercial and domestic applications. The major emphasis of the course is on students actively planning, developing and producing quality graphics projects, including drawings, images and models.

  • Architectural Drawing
