Course Contents

The course comprises a number of practical tasks where different types of machines and workshop processes are introduced, followed by individual exercises in order to promote the practical skills of the student. Related to each practical task, theoretical aspects are illustrated and examined, e.g. in the applied materials section. The main part of the course is carried out in the student workshop facility and the machine equipment installed constitutes the focus of the course tasks. Being examined from the course, each participant will receive limited access to advanced equipment in production laboratories. The course comprises education in machining of materials (turning, milling, drilling etc), sheet metal processing, welding (MAG, TIG, MMA), NC machining, tool technology and a comprehensive part including materials technology, heat treatment and metrology. The heat treatment part comprises material structures in different material groups, the heat treatments to achieve certain properties and sample preparation in order to analyse structures and properties. Theoretical models are used in order to understand achieved results.
