Mechanical engineers work with machines and engines, from elevator technology to robotics. Students can focus on areas such as heat transfer and fracture mechanics.
ICE offers a diverse range of rigorous academic programs designed to prepare the trainees for the challenges and opportunities that abound in modern technology and society. Our traineesultimate destinations include industry, research, public service, and academia, and provide skills, knowledge, and experience that will help them become leaders in these careers.
Areas of study include mechanical engineering, ocean engineering, manufacturing, engineering management, and more.
The Hydraulics and Pneumatics courses employ a large range of industrial components and candidates build circuits using these so that they learn how to read the diagrams properly and fault-find when things don't go according to plan.
On the Mechanical Maintenance courses, we use custom-made alignment rigs for aligning Vee belts, pulleys, chains, transmission belts and conveyor belts. A range of gear boxes, pumps, bearings and gaskets are used. The Operators Skills course is intended for people with no assumed skills so it begins with how to use the tools properly and progresses towards how to isolate and perform some first-line maintenance tasks like adjusting mechanisms etc.
The Plumbing, Air Conditioning and Line Breaking courses are all focused on the dangers of working with these systems and how to perform tasks like isolating pressurised pipework, diagnosing AC faults and removing and replacing faulty taps, thermostatic valves etc.
On the Fitting Skills courses, we use a range of tools from screwdrivers to micrometers and other hand tools.
