In fact, many students have excelled and become Architects, Engineers, Furniture Builders, Welders, Mechanics, and Plumbers. Only a few persons who have received training in the Industrial Technology Department later filtered into other occupational areas.
It is our vision to see cohesion and collaboration among all stakeholders of the Industrial Technology Department, as we soar and become the driving force for effective transformation in a globally competitive world.
