Study engineering

Engineering encompasses a wide range of trades including boilermaking, casting and moulding, diesel fitting, fabrication, fitting and turning, locksmithing, sheet-metal fabrication, and welding. An engineering qualification can open up a career across a number of industries including construction, infrastructure, and resources and mining.

TAFE Queensland's engineering and manufacturing training capabilities are unparalleled in Australia. They include a $25 million purpose-built engineering training facility which houses specialist training for the boilermaking, welding, sheet-metal fabrication, machining, and fitting trades. The facility includes purpose-built metallurgical laboratories and fully equipped workshops including welding bays, lathes, mills, and computer numerical controlled (CNC) machines.

Our Advanced Manufacturing Centre is home to Australia's premier foundry; a $7.5 million facility and the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. The centre has brought patternmaking into the 21st century with the addition of computer-aided design (CAD), 3D printing, and CNC machining.

At TAFE Queensland we offer a comprehensive range of engineering courses ranging from introductory certificate II courses in locksmithing through to bachelors level courses in civil engineering.
