TAS subjects at Manly Campus

The study of TAS subjects will empower students to successfully meet the challenges of a complex and varied technology-rich contemporary environment and will assist them tin appreciating and being informed about a range of careers in technology and design based disciplines. These include architecture, engineering, information science and software design, environmental design, interior design, fashion, food design and industrial design.

TAS subjects are based on a holistic view of design and integrate procedural and conceptual knowledge into a project based approach to learning. Students identify needs that have personal relevance, apply design theory, and use design processes that encourage flexibility, resourcefulness and creative and critical thinking in the development, communication and production of quality solutions.

Studying these subjects gives a student an opportunity to:

  • Develop self-efficiency, resourcefulness, mature judgment and the capacity to work independently and responsibly.
  • Encourage a sense of purpose, enjoyment and personal satisfaction through the production of their own design projects.
  • Develop respect for quality design and craftsmanship.
  • Develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be a more discerning consumer.
  • Encourage the conservation of materials and resources.
  • Understand occupational health and safety.
