Level 3 Mechanical Engineering
Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Gillespie
This course builds on the skills and knowledge gained at Level 2 providing opportunities for students to build their own engineering product. Past projects have included mini-motorbikes, drift trikes and radio-controlled models. The assessments are a mix of Level 2 and 3 Standards, which continue to count towards a Mechanical apprenticeship if students are considering this vocational pathway. Optional Achievement Standards are offered to enable Course Endorsement. This course works well for Electronics students wanting to construct the mechanical elements of a larger design project.
