    What will you learn?

    Mathematics:

    Mathematics, or ‘math’ is the study of numbers: quantity, structure, space and change. Often referred to as the quest for absolutes, definitive solutions and answers; all sciences require basic knowledge of the rules of mathematics.

    Engineering Science:

    Welding isn’t just a physical process, it also encompasses the complex aspects of materials science, design, inspection, mechanical and electronic systems. Engineering science is the study of physics, mathematics, biology, social science, and engineering.

    Engineering Drawing:

    Engineering drawings are a subsection of technical drawing. Technical drawings include measurements, dimensions, and every detail needed to ascertain the strength, capabilities and weaknesses of theoretical structures. Engineering drawings use standardised language and symbols so that engineers understand the drawings implicitly, with no room for interpretation. Accuracy is the most vital aspect of the technical engineering drawing process.

    Mechanotechnic:

    The Mechanotechnic, or Mechanotechnology module teaches material processes (using raw materials to create goods), the purpose of power transmission, and the mechanics of brakes and bearings. It discusses cranes and lifting machines, water pumps,and internal combustion engines.
