Graduates will be able to integrate analytical and practical mechanical engineering techniques and mechanical engineering knowledge to solve engineering problems. They will also be able to use given criteria to assess mechanical processes and outcomes.

Purpose and Rationale of the qualification
Persons achieving this qualification will be able to, independently as well as under supervision, integrate analytical and practical engineering techniques and engineering knowledge to solve well-defined and open-ended engineering problems. They will also be able to select criteria to judge processes and outcomes. This qualification is intended for engineering practitioners in industry.

Career Opportunities
A graduate will be a member of a team, including engineers, designers, technologists and technicians in the design, construction, marketing, installation and maintenance of mechanical equipment.

Mechanical Engineering students follow streams such as manufacturing, maintenance, design, research and development as well as complete the Government Certificate of Competency. These streams open up employment opportunities at mining companies, automotive plants, engineering and production companies, building service contractors and consulting engineers, and give students the knowledge and skills to become entrepreneurs.
