We were lucky to have Frances and Nicole from Australian National University (ANU) visit us last week to discuss their direct entry offers (using Year 11 grades) and Tuckwell Scholarships. Pictured are Tilly and Eve chatting about their excellent double degrees, very affordable residential accommodation packages and of course, scholarships! ANU will be back in SA for the Careers Expo in April at the Convention Centre as well as a potential visit to Saint Ignatius again in September.

Stackable VET in CAD

Western Technical College is hoping to be able to run CAD in semester two. This will be subject to numbers. If you are creative but unsure of what you would like to do, have a chat to them about CAD.

Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) is a detailed 2D or 3D illustration displaying the components of an engineering or architectural project. Computer-aided design utilizes software to create drawings to be used throughout the entire process of a design project, from conceptual design to construction or assembly.

There are no pre requisites to enrolling in Advanced Engineering CAD Drawing Stackable VET 2023, and the following subjects will be covered in one semester.

MEM30031A Operate computer-aided design (CAD) system to produce basic drawing elements

MEM30032A Produce basic engineering drawings
