Requirements of the course:
This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study.
On-campus practical and theory classes:
For 3 hours every week, you will need to attend workshops and lectures on-campus.
Connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study:
Once enrolled, you will receive information about how to login to our eCampus. Your study will include 6 to 8 hours a week using Blackboard, where you will access learning content, assignments, lesson plans and pre-reading for classes, at your place of choice, on or off-campus. To access the full suite of software activities, you will need to use College computers at Munster campus.
Engineering study pathways that lead to jobs of the future
Are you ready to take the next step in your career?
This skill set is one of three made of units from the MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering - Technical. SM TAFE delivers these skill sets in tandem with the diploma qualification each semester, so that workers seeking to specialise in mechanical or electrical engineering can reach their study goals flexibly.
You can choose to study one or all the skill sets from the diploma, but we recommend you enrol into the Diploma if you plan to study all the skill sets and wish to apply for a VET Student Loan.
