It covers basic hardware, engineering drawing practice, manufacturing processes and materials. Course emphasizes how the role of materials, manufacturing processes influence the design of products for use.
Practical training will involve processes such as welding, fitting and machining and use of hand tools as well as introduction to safety in a manufacturing environment.
