You will learn how machines and other mechanical systems work and how they are designed and controlled - how the gear box, clutch and engine in a car operate, how medical devices are fabricated and designed. What the key properties of the materials used in the manufacture of these components are. What methods are used to fabricate and control these products.
The workload is balanced between approximately 50% formal lectures and 50% laboratories and workshop practice. A typical week has anything from twenty-seven to thirty hours of instruction. Tuition is given on the latest CAD packages and leading edge CNC turning and milling machines. Students learn how to work together in teams to accomplish specified goals and targets.
