Our focus is on metal fabrication and with the industry partnerships we have established with numerous sponsors, including Patton Engineering and One Foundation, our workshop is well equipped and resourced.
Our recent addition of eight new MIG welders, 4mm plate roller and guillotine are put to good use on a daily basis along with milling, lathing and advanced fabrication techniques. We prepare students, interested in Engineering, with the necessary skills to move into an apprenticeship and career in Engineering.
All courses are taught to Competenz standards and all senior students also receive quality fabrication tutoring from professional industry based Engineers. We are working towards equipping our workshop with the latest technologies and want to expose the students to the same machinery and tools they would work with in industry.
