Technology is a “hands-on” subject, which involves working with tools and machinery on materials like metals, plastic and timber and electronics. Examination of the subject has two components; a student project (allocated 50% of the overall marks) and a theory-based examination sat in June, as part of the main timetabled Leaving Certificate examinations. The final examination investigates topics such as electronics and controls, applied control systems, information and communication technology, manufacturing systems and material technology. This is an excellent subject for a practically-minded student who has a keen interest in engineering and technology. The theory relates to examples taken from everyday life. Having studied technology at Junior Certificate level is an advantage but is not necessary.

This is a very achievable course to cover in one year.

At Hewitt College, we are finalising our roadmap to safely guide our students on their Leaving Certificate journey.

For the coming academic year, no external student will be admitted to Hewitt College during term time.

– Supervised Study: These facilities are only available to full-time Hewitt College students.

– Grinds | Extra Subject: Will not be available on campus. We are currently organising our online grinds | extra subject programme.

We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment. However, our priority must be, as always, our full-time students. We have taken these measures to ensure their safety and continuity of learning.
