MEM60112 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.

Completion of WACE General or ATAR (Minimum C Grades) or equivalent Completion of WACE General or ATAR or equivalent (minimum C Grades) Certificate III

   
This course is available as a traineeship.

Entrance requirements for traineeships

You must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study an apprenticeship or traineeship. 

In a traineeship you also gain hands-on skills and work experience, and improve your employment prospects, while earning a wage. On successful completion you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can lead to rewarding career options. The difference between a traineeship and an apprenticeship is that a traineeship can be either a full time or part time employment based training arrangement, usually for a nominal duration of 12 months or more, generally in a non-trade related area. 

To find out how to arrange a traineeship and study at South Metropolitan TAFE, please contact the Jobs and Skills Centre closest to you.

Job opportunities

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
