Technical Graphics

Killinarden Community School > Technical Graphics

Technical Graphics is taught to Junior Cert level. It contains a variety of very interesting topics. Technical graphics is a subject that will benefit students enormously. The diversity of the subject ensures that the student at all times will be engaged and interested.

Students at junior cert level, as well as drawing with the traditional board and T-Square, will also have the use of the amazing facilities in the newly fitted Technical Graphics/DCG Room.
