New Mac labs for Kangan Institute students
23 July 2010
In the fast-paced world of information technology, staying abreast of industry best practice is important.
To make sure students are across these developments, Kangan Institute's ICT department is installing two new Apple Macintosh labs at the Broadmeadows and Essendon campuses.
ICT manager Terry McNamara said students enrolled in digital media courses for semester two will be the first to take advantage of the new Apple equipment.
"It's really an industry requirement that any student studying digital media is familiar with Macs as well as PCs," he said.
"With the new equipment and back-up tech support from our internal IT department, our students graduate with the relevant skills and knowledge to succeed."
Terry said there were a number of logistical considerations and difficulties which needed to be planned around before this project was approved, including the provision of support for staff training.
Funding for the initiative was provided by Kangan Institute's Business Services Group.
"Our teachers are looking forward to training students on the new Macs," he said, "and I'm sure all our students will benefit from the opportunity to train in an industry-standard setting."
