DIPLOMA OF ENGINEERING - TECHNICAL

National ID: MEM50212 | State ID: J367

 

Are you ready for a technically advanced engineering career?

When you complete the Diploma of Engineering - Technical 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 Diploma of Engineering - Technical 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:

Mechanical Engineering is the most broadly based branch of engineering. Mechanical Engineers oversee all aspects of the design, development, installation, operation and maintenance of machinery. Examples of areas in which Mechanical Engineers work are:

- Mining and Resource industries
- Power generation
- Manufacturing
- Transportation
- Refrigeration and Air conditioning
- Technical sales and Consulting
- Ship design and construction
- Aviation and Aerospace
