• Mechanical Engineers are creative, imaginative and adaptable. The role requires an eye for detail, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work well under pressure. The engineer must also think about the energy, environmental and safety aspects of the planned work. Wintec’s National Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Level 6) will provide you with these skills to get you into this expanding industry. PROGRAMME CONTENT The National Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Level 6) includes practical skills and theoretical knowledge for a comprehensive education in mechanical engineering. It incorporates tuition in solid modeling, CAD drawing, engineering mechanics, materials science, manufacturing, workshop practice, electrotechnology, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, design, mathematics and engineering management in keeping with current engineering practice. This Level 6 programme requires two years full-time study to complete. Part-time study is an option for people in employment. GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES The National Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical Engineering) (Level 6) may lead to a career in design, manufacturing, product development, project, installation and commissioning, CAD / CAM, engineering management, production, power generation and sales.
