Mechanical Techniques Program (Fast-Track) (T149)

Program Description

Program Overview

This Mechanical Techniques program is specifically designed to complement university engineering students' theoretical knowledge with applied practical techniques. Topics include manufacturing protocol, engineering drawing, solid modelling (Solidworks), precision machining, quality control, CNC machining with Mastercam, pneumatics/electro-pneumatic circuits and microprocessor control systems. Coursework emphasizes practical techniques through applied learning and hands-on lab activities.

Full Description

The Mechanical Techniques program is specifically designed to introduce currently enrolled and recently graduated university engineering students to practical engineering concepts that include:

  • industrial safety
  • dimensional inspection
  • machining practices
  • metal forming
  • quality control
  • pneumatics/electro-pneumatic circuits
  • embedded electronics
  • Computer-Aided Design (CAD), Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining techniques

Coursework will cover both theoretical and practical concepts with a focus on the lab-based application of course content.

Career & Postgraduate Study Opportunities

Career Options

Upon completion of the program, students will have a strong hands-on foundation in understanding the capabilities, limitations, applications and safe operation of machining tools and equipment.

The skills attained through this fast-track certificate program relate directly to employer requirements for university engineering program theory to be complemented by hands-on skills.
