Engineers are interested in how things work and are employed to design, invent, create, maintain and improve everything from buildings to bridges and aeroplanes, to plastics and computers.
This Certificate II in Engineering Studies aims to provide secondary school students with pre-employment training and pathways into the engineering manufacturing or related industries and entry into the wider engineering industry.
It will provide you with competencies in a range of engineering skills such as welding, basic machining, fabrication and use of hand and power tools.
This course is suitable if you have an interest in air-conditioning and refrigeration, CAD, electrical, mechanical, structural engineering, fabrication and panel beating.
Fabrication tradespeople learn to make and repair metal fabricated products, including the shaping, cutting and welding of metal.
They are often engaged in projects that involve heavy metal design in construction, mining, manufacturing, power generation and shipping industries.
At present, employer demand for engineering tradespeople exceeds supply.
The manufacturing and engineering area is the largest employment sector in Australia, with over one third of all job vacancies for trade qualified people.
Completing this course can provide you with a pathway into a highly rewarding career in a wide variety of industries.
This is a VET Delivered to Secondary Students course (previously VETiS) and can only be completed as part of your VCE or VCAL program.
Timetable: Wednesdays 8.30am -3.30pm or 12.30pm - 6pm
Assessments are designed to provide learners with opportunities to demonstrate they have attained the required skills and knowledge using a range of practically based activities and tasks, as required by recognised standards.
