Manufacturing and Technology

This FEES-FREE 24-week general engineering course gives successful students credits towards NCEA Level 2 with Vocational Pathways in Manufacturing and Technology. It is a skills-based programme that is designed to launch your career in a range of metal fabrication occupations.

This is a basic engineering course for those looking for a career in general engineering, fitting and turning, welding, engineering maintenance, metal fabrication, or marine engineering. This Manufacturing and Technology course will give you the required foundation skills to launch your career, as well as the opportunity to gain credits towards NCEA Level 2.

This foundation engineer course is taught by making projects (i.e. wheel clamps, etc). You will cover tech drawing and design, calculations and measurements, and the design and planning of metalwork projects. In the workshop, you will be hands on in measuring, cutting, fabricating, and welding. You will learn about job risk analysis and incident reporting!

On successful completion the manufacturing course, you’ll be well on your way to gaining a highly sought after apprenticeship. Your apprenticeship options could include: Fitter and Turner, Engineer, Structural Fabricator, Sheet metal worker, and Welder.
