UE:This is NOT an ‘approved subject’ for University Entrance. However, the Level 3 credits may be counted towards an NCEA Level 3 Certificate and “the further credits” for University Entrance.
Background:Successful completion of Level 2 Engineering (Mechanical) or approval from the Head of Faculty.
Course Description:This course is designed to follow on from Level 2 Engineering and further extend the skill base. The course aims to provide the training required for students to gain entry into Industrial Technologies and to provide knowledge of the careers available in engineering related industries. This is a practical course with thorough theoretical modules consisting of apprenticeship unit standards to enhance the learning. Students will be learning how to use CAD, 3D printing , Milling and will make a single technically challenging project that demand a high standard of workmanship with an accent on precision and determination. Extended work on the programming computer assisted machine tools, turning, fitting, welding, and precision measurements are covered.
