Design & Communication Graphics

Three teachers currently serve the technology department of the Donahies. There are 7 subjects offered to pupils. They are Technical Graphic, Design and Communication Graphics, Construction Studies, Woodwork, Engineering, Metalwork and Technology. 

The facilities for these subjects have been greatly enhanced in recent years. These enhancements include thousands of euros worth of new machinery for the practical rooms including Computer controlled machines.

One of the most impressive parts of these enhancements however, is the brand new computer lab for the teaching of Design and Communication graphics.

 

They are all connected to the Internet as well as to an A3 LaserJet colour printer.

 

These computers allow the students to design projects, create circuit boards, type up their portfolios, produce working drawings and model projects in 3D CAD. Also in the room is a ceiling mounted data projector.
