Students choosing Metal Engineering as a course of study will be studying units of work based around National
Metals and Engineering Training Package competencies leading to Certificate I Engineering or Certificate II in Engineering pathways. These competencies are recognised nationally and allow for credit transfer to institutions such as CIT and TAFE.
Students would normally study Metal Engineering across 4 units.
The units of study combine to provide a wide variety of experiences in designing and constructing a range of projects. Naturally there is an advantage in completing all four units. The last unit is very popular, as there is the free choice option for the final project. More advanced students will be able to negotiate projects.
This course allows for students to complete set work and also some of their own artefacts in metal by negotiation. It covers areas such as sheet metal, light metal fabrication, metal machining, welding, heat treatment of metals, reading workshop drawings, OHS and flame cutting.
The workshop is well equipped and can cater for a wide range of interests in the metal manufacturing and design field.
As well as set class work there are four Structured Workplace Learning units available which allow students to gain work skills and an understanding of the Metals and Engineering profession.
Some Engineering Drawing is also included in this course to cover communication and interpretation of engineering processes.
