Learning Options

The learning program should develop trade-like skills.  As an example, it is about being introduced to welding, how it can be used to join metal and having the opportunity to weld some metal together.  Similarly, with machining, the focus should be on using engineering tools and equipment to produce or modify objects.

The learning program is centred around a major project that students develop over the course of their studies.
