Jump start your career in mechanical engineering
Engineering is on New Zealand’s skill shortage list and is a key area needed for the Christchurch re-build. If you enjoy solving problems, repairs and maintenance, welding, working with metal, working with machines or people in an industry at the forefront of change, then a career in this area could be for you. Jump start your career with pre-trade training equivalent to the first year of an apprenticeship, enter employment. Continue with an apprenticeship in the mechanical engineering trades or choose further study in careers such as aviation.
