Upon successful completion, you will have a comprehensive background in mechanical studies, preventative maintenance, safe shop practices, and equipment management systems.

This is the busiest season for this industry, so job placements are readily available. This is an ideal opportunity for students to apply the skills and knowledge gained in semester 1, while demonstrating their abilities to potential, future employers.
