Advanced Diploma of Engineering [Mechanical]

National ID: MEM60112 | State ID: WB91

 

This qualification will provide you with practical skills and knowledge to carry out mechanical engineering, detailed drafting, design and oversee the installation and maintenance of machinery.

You will learn about the engineering drafting industry and safety in the workplace. You will also learn skills to prepare drawings, design mechanical equipment, operate and maintain mechanical systems, project management, OH&S, quality systems and team building. You will be able to use the skills you have learnt by undertaking an engineering project in mechanical engineering or mechatronics.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

Successful completion of qualification provides you with the opportunity to become an engineering associate/technician or a design drafter and with suitable experience as a supervisor.

Completion of this qualification provides you with the opportunity to become an engineering associate/ technician or a design drafter, technical lead, mechanical engineering associate and, with suitable experience, a supervisor.

Further study opportunities:

Completion may lead into Curtin University (Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical Engineering)) or Murdoch University (Bachelor of Engineering (Renewable Energy Engineering)) with possibility of advanced standing.

Local full time students

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.
NOTE up to date fees will be available shortly. Please return to this page or contact us for details
