Advanced Diploma of Engineering

National ID: MEM60112 | State ID: J368

 

Are you ready for a technically advanced engineering career?

When you complete the Advanced Diploma of Engineering you'll have analytical skills in mechanical engineering, as an engineering technician, detailed drafter, or maintenance technician.

You will gain the advanced skills and knowledge to carry out mechanical engineering drafting and design, analytical work involving manufacturing and fabrication techniques, understand the application of engineering principles, systems, and processes, draw and design mechanical equipment, maintain mechanical systems, and workplace health and safety.

Completion of the Advanced Diploma of Engineering opens up a range of further study options, and may produce advanced standing towards a university degree.

South Metropolitan TAFE's Carlisle campus has specialty workshops and equipment to prepare you for these highly demanded trades. Past student projects have included design specifications for Rosco McGlashan's new Aussie Invader vehicle, and design and production of an automated injecting system used by Royal Perth Hospital for testing quantity and speed of delivery of new medications.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

The Advanced Diploma of Engineering provides the formal technical education, which is necessary for engineering associates and engineering technicians.

Among the skills you will develop are:
- able to carry out mechanical engineering and design drafting;
- engage in work which is basically analytical with a good background understanding of manufacturing and fabrication techniques;
- develop a broad understanding of the applications of engineering principles, materials, systems, standards and processes.

A significant feature of the qualification is its practical learning-by-doing project component.

Graduates are typically employed in areas such as:
- computer aided design and drafting
- process plant drafting and design
- machine drafting and design
- air conditioning drafting and design
- shipbuilding drafting and design
- plant maintenance supervision (building on a trade background)
- general engineering and technical positions
- other technical areas
