Mechanical engineering apprenticeships are a common pathway into mechanical careers that work with a wide variety of machinery, subassemblies and manufactured parts.
Success in mechanical engineering apprenticeships demands attention to detail, and you’ll be expected to demonstrate the aptitude to take on work that uses a wide range of specialist tools and equipment.
To match skilled apprentices who are looking to find an apprenticeship, MIGAS partners with business owners and people throughout Australia. Our connections mean we’re making it simpler than ever to embark on mechanical engineering apprenticeships and build a career in one of Australia’s most in-demand industries.
Mechanical Engineering Apprenticeships and Career Pathways
Mechanical engineering apprenticeships are your pathway to a career in the machining, manufacturing and fabrication industries. With a range of specialisations available to you, you’ll be able to turn your mechanical apprenticeship into work in the automotive, mining, food manufacturing industry and more. MIGAS strives to provide opportunities that align with your goals, and we can offer mechanical engineering opportunities that lead to the following specialisations:
- Toolmakers: Mechanical apprentices can train as toolmakers involved with producing precision tools, moulds, dies and jigs for the manufacturing industry. Completing highly detailed work means toolmaking apprentices are required to work with a wide range of hand tools, as well as with equipment such as CNC machines, lathes, mills, grinders and sophisticated measuring equipment.
- Machinists: Training as a machinist will see you learning the ropes of some of the industry’s most cutting edge equipment. Mechanical apprenticeships provide training on a range of workflows, including planning machining processes, operating CNC equipment, fabricating components, building sub assemblies and following precise blueprints.
