NCEA Level 2 Engineering

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Kemsley Smith

Students who take this course will complete a full year in the Metal and Engineering workshop environment. Within the year they will undertake a minimum of 2 engineering projects, one of which is classed as their major project. Undertaking the major project requires the students to research and design a product (BBQ or similar) and to then plan and produce their design as a working prototype/product. Students participating in this course will gain credits in Unit Standards through Competenz (New Zealand Engineering Food & Manufacturing Industry Training Organization). 

This course aims to teach students key theoretical and practical skills in the following: design and planning in metal fabrication, materials study of common engineering materials, measurement and precision marking out, safe working procedures for working with tools and machinery in the workshop environment, and theory and practical experience in welding.

This course caters for students interested in a future in the engineering and automotive industry. Students will earn nationally recognized engineering and automotive unit standards, while developing a range of creative and practical skills.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
