Engineering and Fabrication Open Days

Do you love work that is physical and technical? Consider a practical career in the fabrication trades and become an expert in welding engineering.


At Holmesglen, we're all about hands on learning, so our fabrication workshops are equipped with industry standard machinery. Our continued investment in equipment means that you learn on the equipment you will find on the job, so when you finish your studies you are work safe and work ready.


Visit us on Open Days at 2.30pm and talk to our teachers about a career in Engineering. You will be shown around our workshop and possibly having a try at designing something with our computer controlled plasma machine that you can take home. After the tour our teaching staff will be available to answer any further questions about the courses and the industry.


You can also come along to find out more about our VET in Schools course, the Certificate II in Engineering Studies. Our experienced teachers will provide you with information on how we can support you to successfully complete units towards your Year 11 and Year 12 studies as well as highlight future study pathways and career opportunities.
