Recommended Prior Learning

Minimum 8 credits in both literacy and numeracy or 12 credits in a technology subject.



This course is designed to enhance and build on the skills learnt in Level 1 Mechanical Engineering. Through fabrication, machining, aluminium casting and using oxyacetylene gas equipment,  students will be producing an engine which will run off steam or compressed air. The options are a Stationary engine or a Traction engine, both of which are based on the original Mamod designs.



Course Overview
