Learners can undertake the following elective streams:

• Mechanical/Welding for students interested in maintenance roles within manufacturing and construction industries.
• Mechanical/Mechatronic/Welding for students interested in manufacturing environments and using current technology (industry 4.0) to produce engineering products to high quality standards.
• Mechanical/Welding for students interested in working to high welding standards to work in welding environments such as onsite welding, construction, maintenance, oil and gas.
• Mechanical/CNC/CAD for students interested working in manufacturing environments that involve computer design, CNC machining, precision machining and toolmaking.
