The St Patrick’s Technical College Metals & Engineering program prepares you for a career in the manufacturing, engineering, advanced manufacturing, mining, resources and defence industries.
You will become skilled at welding (oxy, mig, arc and tig), cutting, shaping and manufacturing metal structures and components, machining using lathes and milling machines as well as design.
Metals & Engineering students at St Patrick’s Technical College undertake projects designed by the teams at Century Engineering, Master Plumbers SA, and BAE Systems, as part of the P-TECH Australia project, preparing young Australians for careers of the 21st century. Projects span capabilities in South Australia including water, defence, rail, power, resources and energy applications.
The P-TECH projects give you the opportunity to apply your learning from the College’s industry-focused STEM curriculum plus the Engineering qualification that forms part of your program. Key personnel from our P-TECH industry partners, including engineers and technicians, work with you on the projects and as mentors throughout the program.
This program is part of the StPatsTech School of Engineering & Transport. To see the other pathways available in this sub-school, visit the Programs page.
