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.

This Qualification is also available as a Traineeship. To study as a Trainee, you must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation. Please see the Apprenticeships/Traineeships section for more information.
