Technology and Applied Studies (TAS) is the name given to a variety of practically based programs that run within the College. These include Agriculture, Computing, Design and
Technology, Food Technology, Industrial Technology (Multimedia) and Textiles and Design. These subjects provide students with the opportunity to experience project based
learning where students are able to develop a tangible outcome that is reflective and relevant to the world we live in.
Students from Year 7 through to Year 12 are continually challenging themselves and being richly rewarded as they learn skills they will maintain throughout their lives.
Through the study of Agriculture at MACC students develop knowledge, understanding and skills which enable them to contribute positively to their own lifestyle and to the social, economic and environmental future of Australia.
Computing at College is broken up into three elective courses Information and Software Technology (Years 9 & 10), Information Processes and Technology and Software Design and Development (Years 11 & 12) Students learn about: Databases, Internet (web development), Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence.
Design and Technology
The Design and Technology course encourages students to solve real world challenges using innovative methods of design and production. Students learn about: The work and importance of design/designers, skills involved with design and production, planning, organisation and implementation of design ideas in a workshop setting.
The study of Food Technology provides students with a broad knowledge and understanding of food properties, processing, preparation and their interrelationships, nutritional considerations and consumption patterns.
Industrial Technology (Multimedia)
Provides students with an opportunity to develop real life skills in the areas of graphic design, motion graphics and web design.
Textiles and Design
Studying Textiles Technology provides students with broad knowledge of the properties, performance and uses of textiles in which fabrics, colouration, yarns and fibres are explored to create meaningful textile projects.
