Applied Skills/Careers

Applied Skills Department:
We are all makers! Our workshops, kitchens, and other “Maker Spaces” offer students a creative place to learn new skills and apply them to designs and plans they can create with support from many talented and experienced teachers. We emphasize the values of gender equity, inclusivity, and above all, safety in everything we do and make.
Applied Skills Dept Head: Jeff Hutzler
Born in Hamilton, Ontario, I’m a Mohawk College graduate in Engineering Technology and I’ve worked for IBM Canada. I transferred to McMaster University for a BSc and moved out to Vancouver Island after meeting a Gray Whale up close and personal while hiking the West Coast Trail. I’m a UVic alumni and I’ve been teaching for twenty years mostly in IT and Electronics.
