Qualification and recognition
On completion, you will receive the 22470VIC Certificate II in Engineering Studies qualification.
Connections with industry
Engineers are interested in how things work and are employed to design, invent, create, maintain and improve everything from buildings bridges and aeroplanes, to plastics and computers.
Fabrication trades people 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.
