Unit code: MEM14089 | Study level: TAFE
MEM23004 - Apply technical mathematics
MEM23109 - Apply engineering mechanics principles
(Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


This unit defines the skills and knowledge required to identify, apply and integrate mechanical fundamentals to achieve an engineering or related task and includes identifying task parameters, personal and team functions, chain of responsibility and work health and safety (WHS) guidelines. It is suitable for people working as mechanical designers and draftspersons and those pursuing careers and qualifications in mechanical engineering.


For Melbourne campuses

Assessment tasks will be designed to reinforce & extend knowledge and skill competence within set & controlled parameters in accordance with each unit's learning outcomes & performance criteria requirements, including the setting of work based practical application tasks designed to provide evidence of competence outcomes, within periodic and scheduled timelines.

Students will be expected to demonstrate the following required skills:

  • following work instructions, standard operating procedures (SOPs) and safe work practices
  • communicating, cooperating and negotiating with stakeholders to achieve integration task
  • determining task parameters and context, and work health and safety (WHS) regulatory and risk management requirements
  • identifying and investigating required mechanical fundamentals
  • evaluating task requirements, principles, techniques, typical applications and software
  • selecting and using software and graphics for required analysis and graphics
  • planning the task
  • integrating mechanical fundamentals to achieve task objectives on at least two occasions
  • reviewing sustainability implications, functions and features for the engineering task
  • reporting and documenting results on at least two occasions.
    Note: Where a volume and/or frequency is not specified, demonstration must be provided at least once.
