Mechanical Engineering (Fitting and Machining)

Be in charge of maintenance and repair of equipment and develop your knowledge and learn how to manufacture, construct, assemble and fit components for machinery and other apparatuses.

Why Choose the Programme?

As highly skilled craftspeople, Fitters and Turners are responsible for the maintenance and repair of equipment. The more experienced Fitters and Turners can study plans and then manufacture, construct, assemble and fit components for machinery, vehicles, and other apparatuses. They are also able to set up the machinery to manufacture engineering products and repair or replace products.
