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.

Engineering and Fabrication Open Days

Do you love work that is physical and technical? Consider a practical career in the fabrication trades and become an expert in welding engineering. At Holmesglen, we're all about hands on learning, so our fabrication workshops are equipped with industry standard machinery. Our continued investment in equipment means that you learn on the equipment you will find on the job, so when you finish your studies you are work safe and work ready. Visit us on Open Days at 2.30pm and talk to our teachers about a career in Engineering. You will be shown around our workshop and possibly having a try at designing something with our computer controlled plasma machine that you can take home. After the tour our teaching staff will be available to answer any further questions about the courses and the industry. You can also come along to find out more about our VET in Schools course, the Certificate II in Engineering Studies. Our experienced teachers will provide you with information on how we can support you to successfully complete units towards your Year 11 and Year 12 studies as well as highlight future study pathways and career opportunities. Registrations are essential for sessions to go ahead.
