Diploma of Engineering - Technical [Mechanical]

National ID: MEM50212 | State ID: WB84

 

This course will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge in electrical machinery, mechanical principles and mechanical equipment to produce drawings for design specifications.

Gaining a range of computer aided drafting (CAD) skills, you will be able to interpret and create drawings components for the manufacture of equipment. Learning about fluid power will give you the skills and knowledge to set up and connect hydraulic equipment.

The Diploma of Engineering - Technical (Mechanical) shares the same first semester with the Diploma of Engineering - Technical (Mechatronics). In simple terms, mechanical and mechatronics have many common elements, but as the name suggests mechanical is more geared toward mechanical design but does have some electrical, electronics and programming content.

You can always switch streams between the two by choosing the correct electives. 

Mechanical engineering is applied across a wide variety of employment areas including:

  • Mining and mineral processing
  • Manufacturing
  • Oil and gas industry
  • Automotive industry
  • Aviation and shipbuilding industries
  • Electrical power generation and distribution
  • Road and rail transport
  • Defence
  • Agriculture, fishing and food processing

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.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
