Upon successful completion, it may be possible to complete vocational training (NVQs) either at Eastleigh College or in the workplace. We also offer courses in the use of AutoCAD, delivered at Eastleigh College through twilight delivery sessions.
A career in Engineering could take you to a vast range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, food and drink, marine, medical, IT, construction, nuclear, or even space. There are opportunities to work as a mechanical, electrical or chemical engineer in most industries, where you could focus on the research and design elements or take a more hands-on approach with manufacturing and maintenance.
There are no formal requirements or entry level qualifications required to join this course and we welcome candidates that are experienced or new to the world of engineering. It would be advantageous, however, if candidates had a basic understanding of engineering drawing principles and be working within an engineering sector but this is not essential as the course is designed to accommodate a range of skill levels, from entry level to those with years of experience who simply require an update or refresher on modern drawing principles.
You will study a range of conventional Engineering Drawing methodology, including: - - Drawing types (assembly, piece part, machining, welding) - First, Third and Isometric/Orthographic views - Appropriate use of symbols and abbreviations - Line types, styles, conventions - Correct setting and layout of drawings - Basic dimensioning including tolerances - Appropriate drawing equipment and usage This is a competence-based qualification that will lead to a College certificate of attendance following successful achievement. This course is flexible in delivery, and can run over the duration of a day training session or a whole day depending on business requirements and the complexity of the training required. This course covers the majority of information required to understand basic mechanical two-dimensional engineering drawings. Topics covered are: basic drawing elements (formats, title block, parts list, revision block, etc.), part views (multiview, auxiliary, and isometric), section views, general dimensions, tolerances, finish symbols, and welding symbols. All nine modules include a quiz. Most modules include drawing assignments, a quiz, and supplementary information.
This course is flexible in delivery, and can run over the duration of a day training session or a whole day depending on business requirements and the complexity of the training required.
This course is a bespoke training package designed to enable the tradesman to learn about the basic skills of engineering drawing to BS 8888. It is designed primarily for those entering, or beginning as designers, drafters, quality, procurement, tooling, production, manufacturing and shop personnel. It is also an ideal refresher for those wishing to gain further familiarity of basic engineering drawing conventions.
Basic engineering drawing equipment including pencils, pens and a rule. Equipment will be provided for more complex feature creation.
