Senior Design Technology

In the Senior School we continue to provide a high-quality Design Technology (DT) education that gives pupils opportunities to create, innovate, design, make and evaluate a variety of well-crafted products using a very wide range of skills. Students will be taught the technical skills and craftsmanship to execute practical tasks, developing confidence to increase their skills, knowledge and competence in using materials, machinery, techniques and processes.

Rugby School Thailand offers first-rate facilities and students will initially be shown how to communicate their ideas and designs skillfully and accurately in 2D and 3D, using a wide variety of advanced techniques, including digital technology, CAD, CAM and 3D Printing. From this technical base, students will explore a range of projects utilizing these skills, whilst developing practical skills. Students will know about good design through investigating the rich history of design and technological innovation to inform their own work, and use the correct technical terminology to develop their DT literacy. We also place importance on showing students new developments and helping them to think about the responsibilities of designers, such as environmental impact.
