Summary... header image

Precision engineering is involved with the design, manufacturing and measurement of highly specified parts for the medical, aerospace, automotive, oil and gas exploration and related industry. This degree has been designed with industry to respond efficiently and effectively to the needs of the Precision Engineering industry. Students learn how to work effectively with both manual and CNC machines to produce parts from an initial design to a final product.

Parts are designed using CAD systems to develop solutions to engineering problems and when completed the accuracy will measure specialised measurement equipment such as co-ordinate measuring machines (CMM). Students will work as individuals and in groups on a variety of industrial standard engineering projects. This degree is an active learning programme with the application of theory in workshop/labs with hands-on experience on state-of-the-art CNC machines, CAM software and metrology equipment.
