Mechanical Engineering N1-N6 is a Department of Higher Education and Technnology (DHET) qualification which can be obtained by passing ssubjects relevant to mechanical engineering. 

There are many career fields one can venture into after obtaining your Mechanical Engineering N1-N6. The time to complete the study ranges from two years and above. The requirement for each level is to pass relevant four subjects under Mechanical Engineering. There is a certificate for each and every level, for example after passing four subjects in N1 Mechanical Engineering, you will recieve your N1 certifcate and so on. 

After finishing your N6 qualification and obtaining relevant experience, you will be awarded a diploma in Mechanical Engineering. 

Qualifications in Mechanical Engineering N1-N3

There are many qualifications that one can obtain in Mechanical Engineering N1-N3 and each has different subjects that one must do.

 

What are the requirements for one to write a trade test

One of the important reasons for doing N-courses is that they are needed for one to write a trade test. The most important N-level to write a trade test is N2. Upon completion of your N2 certificate, you can apply for a trade testing in your relevant Mechanical Engineering field. 

The N2 Certificate must include the four relevant subjects of Mathematics, Engineering Science and a fourth subject as required by the trade, for example if you want to trade test for fitting and turning-the fourth subject must be Fitting and machining Theory N2

 

Mechanical Engineering N1-N3: Motor and Diesel Qualification

One of the courses one can obtain in Mechanical Engineering is the Motor and Diesel Qualification. The following subjects are offered under Motor and Diesel:

 

  MOTOR AND DIESEL N1 N2 N3
1 MATHEMATICS
2 INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS
3 ENGINEERING SCIENCE (PHYSICS)
4 MOTOR TRADE THEORY-TRADE 1    OR
5 DIESEL TRADE THEORY-TRADE 2    OR  
6 MOTOR ELECTRICAL-TRADE 3

The compulsory subjects for Motor and Diesel N1-N3 are: Mathematics, Engineering Science and Industrial Electronics. Each N-level takes three months to complete and you need to pass four subjects. Depending on which area in Motor and Diesel you need to study in, if you are interested in Diesel Trade, then you only need to do Trade 2 and not other trades.

Mechanical Engineering N1-N3: Fitting and Turning Qualification

One of the courses you can qualify for under Mechanical Engineering N1-N3 is Fitting and Turning qualification. The qualification requires the following subjects:

 

  MECHANICAL ENGINEERING-FITTING AND TURNING N1 N2 N3
1 MATHEMATICS
2 ENGINEERING SCIENCE (PHYSICS)
3 ENGINEERING DRAWING
4 FITTING AND MACHINING  
5 MECHANOTECHNOLOGY    

The compulsory subjects for Fitting and Turning N1-N3 are: Mathematics, Engineering Science and Engineering Drawing and for N1-N2 you need to do Fitting and Machining. However in N3, Fitting and machining is replaced by Mechanotechnology. Each N-level takes three months to complete and you need to pass four subjects.

Mechanical Engineering N1-N3: Bolier Making or Welding

One of the courses you can qualify for under Mechanical Engineering N1-N3 is Bolier Making or Welding. The qualification requires the following subjects:

 

  BOILERMAKING/WELDING N1 N2 N3
1 MATHEMATICS
2 ENGINEERING SCIENCE (PHYSICS)
3 PLATING AND STRUCTURAL STEEL DRAWING
4 METAL WORKERS THEORY    
5 PLATERS THEORY (BOILERMAKING)    
6 WELDERS THEORY (WELDING)    
7 MECHANOTECHNOLOGY    

The compulsory subjects for Boilder Making or Welding N1-N3 are: Mathematics, Engineering Science and Plating and Structural Steel Drawing. The other subjects offered depending on the level are determined by whether you want to study Boilermaking or Welding. For Boilermaking you do subjects such as Metal Workers Theory, Platers’ Theory and Mechanotechnology. For Welding you do subjects such as Metal Workers’ Teiry, Welders’ Theory and Mechanotechnolody. Please refer to the table above.  Each N-level takes three months to complete and you need to pass four subjects.

Mechanical Engineering N1-N3: Millwright

  MILWRIGHT N1 N2 N3
1 MATHEMATICS
2 ENGINEERING SCIENCE (PHYSICS)
3 ELECTRICAL TRADE THEORY
4 INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS      
5 ENGINEERING DRAWING
6 FITTING AND MACHINING  
7 MECHANOTECHNOLOGY    

Mechanical Engineering N1-N3 has a course under which is called Millwright. There are many subjects that can be done under the Millwright course. The compulsory subjects are: Mathematics and Engineering Science and Elecrical trade Theory N1-N3. If the student has an experience with drawing, the can choose Engineering Drawing or alternatively if they do not have a drawing background they can choose intead Industrial Electronics. Fitting and Machining N1-N2 and Mechanotechnology N3 are some of the subjects that can be done also.

 

Qualifications in Mechanical Engineering N4-N6

Mechanical Engineering N4-N6

Mechanical Engineering N4-N6 os a qualification one can get after passing their Mechanical Engineering N1-N3.

The following table list the subjects one can choose under Mechanical Engineering N4-N6

 

  MECHANICAL ENGINEERING (N4-N6) N4 N5 N6
1 MATHEMATICS
2 MECHANOTECHNICS
3 ENGINEERING SCIENCE (PHYSICS)
4 MECHANICAL DRAUGTHING    
5 MECHANICAL DRAWING & DESIGN  
6 SUPERVISORY MANAGEMENT
7 POWER MACHINES  
8 STRENGTH OF MATERIALS & STRUCTURES  
9 FLUID MECHANICS  
10 CONTROL SYSTEMS    

Remember one needs to pass ONLY four subjects per level in Mechanical Engineering N4-N6. There are many subjects to choose from and Methamatics and Engieering Science are the compulsory subjects one can do.
