Course Description

Teacher in Charge: C. Lawrence

This course is centred around a single complex practical. Students will design using CAD (Computer Aided Design) developing full orthographic engineering drawings. Students will put their design through our CAM system (Computer Aided Manufacture) and then learn to programme and set CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machines to produce their product.

This course undertaken in an Engineering Workshop.
