What is Engineering Skills? 

What Engineering Skills focuses on the underpinning industry practices and production processes required to create, maintain and repair predominantly metal products in the engineering manufacturing industry. 

Students understand industry practices, interpret specifications, including technical information and drawings, demonstrate and apply safe and practical production processes with hand/power tools and machinery, communicate using oral, written and graphical modes, organise, calculate and plan production processes and evaluate the products they create using predefined specifications.

Students develop transferable skills by engaging in manufacturing tasks that relate to business and industry, and that promote adaptable, competent, self-motivated and safe individuals who can work with colleagues to solve problems and complete practical work. 

What makes a student suited to Engineering Skills?

Students who achieve success in Engineering Skills are those who:
  • are hardworking and have an ability to work individually and in teams
  • want to develop understanding of engineering technology and its application to industry 
  • are preparing for vocational employment 
  • are supportive of the development of a safe working culture 
  • understand that the basis of practical skills is in theoretical understanding
