Immerse yourself in a project based, hands on course in engineering. Start your career in an area which has so many specialties for you to choose from.
Balance the design and planning elements with learning how to use industry standard tools in a purpose-built workshop created for this exact purpose. Manage engineering based projects, undertake processes and learn the industry you are about to enter, inside and out.
Early career starts are available for VCE and VCAL students seeking a career in engineering. Students can integrate a VET certificate in Engineering within a VCE or VCAL syllabus. Develop skills in machining, fabrication and the safe use of power tools. Use computer controlled lathes (CNC), lasers, and computer aided drafting (CAD) to create projects and your own equipment for use in the trade. A major project is completed at the end of the units 3+4 study.
Engineering Studies enables you to:/
Develop the skills to work with a range of equipment and tools./
Produce engineering components./
Undertake a major product and document the process./
Make vice soft jaws, a sheet metal tool caddy, centre punch, soft face mallet or an engineer’s square.
This is a project-based, hand-on course delivered in a simulated workplace environment in a fully- equipped workshop. The course provides students with the skills and knowledge to pursue an apprenticeship in the engineering trades or with a foundation for professional engineering roles. Units 1 & 2 cover areas in computer technology and using hand and power tools.
We deliver a general qualification including some elective units from fabrication, machining and engineering technical pathways. Units 3 & 4 offers scored assessment and incorporates units such as producing basic engineering sketches and drawings, handling engineering materials, performing computations (for the VCE stream only).
You can read about two student engineering studies projects completed this year here.
Projects made in Units 1 & 2 include vice soft jaws, sheet metal tool caddy, centre punch, soft face mallet and an engineer’s square. Students doing Units 3 & 4 are required to construct a major project and document the project in a portfolio.
Students wanting a study score for the Engineering certificate can undertake scored assessment. Practical project work is assessed by observation and questioning, written tasks and tests are assessed using set criteria. Students are given a fair and adequate assessment process with multiple opportunities to demonstrate competency. Students must attend 80% of all classes and successfully complete all units of competency to obtain their certificate II qualification.
Students are recommended to undertake a minimum of 80 hours of Structured Workplace Learning.
Year 9 – 10 basic language, literacy and numeracy levels are desired. If you have any individual needs please contact us to discuss the options available to you.
