During your studies, you will learn some theories in kinematics, angular motion, dynamics, modulus and other Engineering Science components. In addition, you will learn some fundamentals of Mechanical Draughting, gears, manufacturing and machining processes, and other mechanical draughting concepts. You will also learn workshop layouts, metal cutting machines, hydraulic systems and other learning components in Mechanotechnics. In addition, you will be well grounded in mathematical problem-solving skills in the relevant field of study.
The programme duration is 1 year minimum.
With this qualification, successful learners could pursue a career as a:
- Mechanical Engineer
- Design Engineer
- Materials Scientist
- Process Controller/Technician
Upon successful completion of your required exams for each level, you will be awarded your National
Certificate N4 Engineering Studies by the Department of Higher Education and Training. In order to qualify
for a National Diploma, you have to work 18 months in the field after achieving your N6 certificate.
