College Design and Technology students enter the annual Young Innovators / Young Engineers for Britain competition.
Each year our students present their A Level Engineering and Product Design projects to the judges at this prestigious event. Held in the Odyssey arena Belfast it is the largest showcase of its kind in the United Kingdom and provides students with an opportunity to present their design solutions and manufacturing skills to teams of expert judges and their peers.
In recent years many awards have been achieved for craftsmanship, innovative design, commercial potential with one student winning Young Engineer for Britain. The Rubble Rake (James Morgan Kilcoo)

The department runs an after school 'TECHNOLOGY CLUB' on Tuesdays primarily for junior pupils keen to catch up with class work or those who wish to design and make their own project ideas. Many enjoy working independently practicing skills they have learned to make small items of interest. Others prefer to bring things to school for repair or modification. Some just enjoy using the computer facilities to model electronic circuits, produce graphics or to word process.
(Department facilities are also open to all senior GCSE / AS and A2 students Monday to Thursday after school hours).
