This course is taught by making projects (i.e. letterboxes, braziers, etc). You will cover tech drawing and calculations and the design and planning of metalwork projects. In the workshop, you will be hands-on in measuring, cutting, fabricating and welding. You will also gain job risk analysis and incident reporting!
This is a course for those looking for a career in general engineering, fitting, engineering maintenance, metal fabrication, or marine engineering. This course will give you the required foundation skills to launch your career, as well as the opportunity to gain credits towards NCEA Level 2.
After completing Mechanical Engineering Level 2 you can enrol in the National Certificate in Welding (Level 3). The Level 3 welding programme has a fee for students who are 20 years of age or older.
On successful completion you’ll be well on your way to gaining a highly sought after apprenticeship. Your apprenticeship options could include:
|National Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 2)|

Mechanical engineers design and give advice on the building and repair of machines and tools. They also investigate problems and faults with machinery, and study ways to improve manufacturing and energy production.
Fabrication engineers make, install and repair metal products such as vents, handrails, boilers, aircraft and boat parts, or beams and girders for construction projects.
Engineering machinists use machines to cut and shape precision parts and equipment. They create, install, maintain and repair metal products, including machinery and equipment in factories.
