Mechanical Engineering Level 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Slaney

Mechanical Engineering Level 2

A workshop course with the emphasis on practical skills leading to greater knowledge and understanding of Mechanical Engineering systems and implementations. Credits are obtained by a combination of theory and practical based assessment provided through Competenz, as well as NCEA achievement standards. 

Not all standards will be assessed for every student. A selection will be chosen to suit chosen projects. Likely credits will be around 14-18 in total for the year. 

Once all standards are achieved, there is the opportunity to be involved in an automotive project, or another project of their own design.
