At Wyndham College we develop in our students the ability to be able to consider and be aware of the impact that designers and the nature of design has upon the world. The Technology and Applied Studies (TAS) faculty utilises both traditional and industry standard technologies to provide students with opportunities to engage in innovative design activities from a creative and practical aspect. The rapid rate of technological change in an increasingly knowledge-based society highlights the need for flexible technological capability, innovative thinking and effective communication skills. Vital life skills such as team work, communication, time management and organisational skills underpin all Technology and Applied Studies design projects. TAS electives provide the opportunity for students to complete practical projects which are both challenging and rewarding. They allow students to develop a range of skills which are an asset both personally and later in the workplace. Course choices in TAS include Community and Family Studies, Construction, Food Technology, Design and Technology, Engineering Studies, Industrial Technology Timber products and furniture Technologies and Graphic Technologies, Hospitality and Textiles and Design.
