Teacher in Charge: Mr P. Kemsley Smith
Student who take this course will complete a full year in the 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 them to 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 Organisation). Safety standards are an integral part of this course as is the undertaking of a welding standard. The manufacturing of engineering products will require students to work from specific plans and within given tolerances. Design and making techniques are taught and developed to manipulate materials in the production of the students selected major project which might be items such as a portable BBQ.
This course caters for students interested in a future in the engineering and automotive industry. Students will earn nationally recognised 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A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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.
