  • Objectives
    The Gordon's engineering courses will equip you with comprehensive skills and knowledge to work in a range of roles in various trade industries. The Certificate II in Engineering provides students with a sound foundation in the basic principles of engineering. The course covers skills, machining, hand tools, power tools, technical drawing concepts and quality concepts. Certificate II graduates will need to be indentured by an employer before they continue their training as an apprentice. Certificate II in Engineering graduates have increased opportunity of gaining an apprenticeship in the metals/manufacturing field. The breadth of employment opportunities available to graduates of the Certificate III in Engineering Mechanical Trade course include quality, design, technical, supervision, CNC programming, metallurgy and training. Employment prospects for Diploma of Engineering Technology graduates are broad. They include careers in training, mechanical and plant design, CAD, manufacturing planning, project planning, supervision, technical support and sales and quality roles. Graduates of the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology may also be employed in a management role.
