Design and Technology
is a compulsory subject upto Form III.
For School Certificate,
the following two subjects are offered: CDT(Design of Communication
Design of Technology). At RCPL only CDT:Design and Communication is
offered. Students are to work on themes set by the Cambridge Examinations
Syndicate culminating into a design folio and model.
At HSC Level, Design
and Technology(Communication) is offered. It is a subject concerned
with design activity including an understanding of the manufacture of
artefacts. It is intended as a course for students seeking to develop
further their experience of Design and Communication at SC Level.
The syllabus has
been designed with the demands of employers and higher education in
mind. It could equally wll be studied as a complement to the study of
Mathematics and the Sciences or to provide a contrast to the study of
the Arts Languages and Social Sciences.
For HSC students
have to submit two projects and sit for a written paper. Students have
been performing very well both at SC and HSC Level. Some students fear
to take these subjects mainly because of the stringencies of project
work and the unsupported opinion that quite high costs are involved.
Those students who discipline themselves with sound project management
techniques do very well. We do hope that you will have a better understanding
of the subject "Design and Technology"
