Engineering and Mining

Engineering is the branch of science and technology connected with the design, building and use of engines, machines and structures. It covers diverse career paths including fitters, machinists, boilermakers, sheet metal workers, and refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics.

Mining is one of Western Australia’s biggest industries and offers a wide variety of career opportunities. Study pathways in mining can lead you into a career working as an operator or manager on sites such as quarries, underground or open cut metalliferous mines in a range of specialised fields.

Due to our campus locations mining training is a key area of specialisation for our TAFE. We aim to ensure our training programs are flexible to suit the needs of industry and we are one of the only training providers in Australia to deliver an Advanced Diploma of Metalliferous Mining. This qualification reflects the role of open cut or underground Metalliferous Mine Managers who perform tasks that are strategic, broad and complex. It can also lead to further industry qualifications such as a Quarry Manager Certificate and Underground Supervisor Certificate.
