Students will learn the core knowledge and practical skills required to meet industry needs in their chosen strand of engineering.
At Wintec it's not just about theory, it's about developing the skills students need to actually do the job so hands-on laboratory work reinforces theory taught in classrooms. Students will learn how to design products, how components work, the materials they are made from and how to manufacture them. Then, using SolidWorks students will learn how to draw and present designs for industry, leading to a final semester industry relevant project.
Wintec is closely involved with the mechanical engineering industry. From our qualified tutors, many of who are still working in the industry, to our relationship with WECA (Waikato Engineering Careers Association) who assists us in finding work placements and career opportunities for Wintec students.
With this qualification students will enter the engineering industry with the ability to apply understanding and skills to the standard expected of a practising engineering technician.
What You'll Learn
Before students learn how to design machines, they will learn how to use them - lathes, shaping machines, milling machines, welders and more. Then, using cutting-edge 3D modelling software including SolidWorks and AutoCad, students will produce drawings to industry standards (AS1100).
There are 11 compulsory modules that must be completed over the two year programme. Additionally, there are a mixture of elective modules that can be studied. Students will be able to discuss this choice with the Programme Manager as these will depend on the pathway chosen.
Graduates of the New Zealand Diploma in Engineering may be employed as engineering technicians in workplaces that have a technical/engineering basis relevant to their specialist engineering strand (mechanical, civil, electrical and electronics).
For the mechanical engineering strand roles include the design, manufacture and maintenance of tools, engines, machines and systems.
