Our mechanical department educates students on the key principles of mechanics at work in the industry. We provide training in the use of workforce machinery including lathes, mills, shapers, drills and writing machines. Our program is designed to equip students with the key skills necessary to work for a wide range of businesses involved in electrical and gas welding, cutting (late, thread, stainless steel and gas) and the operation of machinery.
