Mechanical Draughting

The Mechanical module will enable you to identify the function of Mechanical Draughting in the Engineering Industry and interpret Mechanical Draughting as an accurate and meaningful manner of communication.

We are the only college in South Africa that includes Solid Works in the training of the Mechanical Module. This leading software (used by NASA) enables you to produce 3D models and detailed mechanical drawings. As well as Solid Works for 3D models, assemblies and simulations of Mechanical designs; you will also use AutoCAD and Microstation for 2D detail drawings.
