Mechanical Engineering

Year 12

This course will allow students to develop a sound understanding of basic engineering practices. Qualifications gained through this course may assist students to gain employment or entry to engineering based tertiary courses.

This practical based course, written in consultation with the COMPETENZ (New Zealand Engineering, Food and Manufacturing Industry Training Organisation) is designed to give students an introduction to the following areas of engineering:

  • Health and Safety practices
  • Safe care and use of hand tools
  • Engineering safety
  • Measuring and marking out tools

Using the knowledge from these learning areas, students will manufacture projects which will give an understanding of the practical applications used in engineering today.
