Department / Subject Area:

The Design and Media course can be selected as a standalone course or as a complement to the Computer Science courses.

Students who have already worked through the Level 1 course can continue to develop technical skills and learn a wider range of project management skills. The emphasis is on students designing their own projects throughout the year and working on a range of areas of interest. The range of technical areas covered is similar to those in the Level 1 course including but not limited to: Graphic design, 3D modelling and 3D printing, Web design, Software design, and Programmable electronics (Arduino).

For students working towards Canterbury University and CPIT, this course has clear vocational pathways through both tertiary providers.

Prerequisites for course: Students will have completed the level 1 course or by consultation by Mrs Atkins.
