In recognition of Jesus Christ as the Master Craftsman, the purpose of technology studies in a Seventh-day Adventist Institution is to train students to use their hands, head and heart in applying science and technology to serve the noble goals of mankind. Society is becoming increasingly more dependent on technology for transport, communication, information processing, manufacturing etc. It is in these areas that the department will make significant contributions.
To train students to diligently apply scientific principles in finding solutions to the challenges facing society in an ever changing world, and to produce quality graduates prepared to use their hands, head and heart in service to God and mankind.
To be the leading department in providing world-class programs in Automotive technology, Electronics technology and building construction.
Programmes in the Department of Technology are designed to:
1. Prepare students to teach technological oriented courses in secondary and technical institutes in the fields of Automotive Technology, Building Construction Management, Computing, Drafting, Electrical, Electronics, Software Development, Welding and Wood Technology.
2. Provide the education and training necessary to become entrepreneurs in various fields of Technology.
3. Equip students with the requisite technical skills needed for employment in industry and institutions.
4. Prepare students for the rigors of postgraduate studies.
5. Inculcate the basic principles of practical Christianity such as honesty, dignity of work, and respect of authority and government.
