Engineering Skills focuses on the underpinning industry practices and production processes required to create, maintain and repair predominantly metal products in the engineering manufacturing industry.
Students understand industry practices, interpret specifications, including technical information and drawings, demonstrate and apply safe and practical production processes with hand/power tools and machinery, communicate using oral, written and graphical modes, organise, calculate and plan production processes and evaluate the products they create using predefined specifications.

For Engineering Skills, assessment from Units 3 and 4 is used to determine the student’s exit result, and consists of four instruments, including:
- at least two projects
- at least one practical demonstration (separate to the assessable component of a project).
|A response to a single task, situation and/or scenario.||A task that assesses the practical application of a specific set of teacher-identified production skills and procedures.||A response that answers a number of provided questions, scenarios and/or problems.|
