MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering – Technical

This qualification is part of the Metal and Engineering Training Package MEM05, which is nationally recognised.  It covers the skills and knowledge required for a draftsperson / technician producing specialist engineering drawings within an engineering design environment.  The course will provide an integrated knowledge of the technical and design systems as they pertain to engineering, as well as an understanding of the administrative processes necessary in achieving the desired outcomes for engineering projects.  This qualification could lead to employment as an engineering draftsperson / technician in the fields of civil, structural or local government engineering, among others.

The units that TasTAFE offer to make up this course have been selected in consultation with industry to reflect their needs and to ensure that graduates are prepared with the skills that employers are looking for.  The skill-base you will develop in this course has been designed to be diverse enough to enable graduates to be adaptive to varying engineering and associated professional environments, to give the best possible employability outcomes for our students.

Career Opportunities

Engineering drafting personnel / engineering technicians are employed in both government and private sector engineering offices.  The public sector areas in which engineering drafters gain employment include: housing, health and community services, and building facilities departments of local, state and federal governments.  They are also in high demand by other allied professions like architects, town planners and builders for their expertise.
