Mechanical Fitting and Metal Machining
Mechanical Fitting and Metal machining focus on the manufacturing and machining of machines parts using processes such as lathe turning, milling, cutting, shaping, fitting of keys are a few processes.
The course is designed primarily with the aim of preparing students seeking a proficiency in the field of Mechanical Engineering Tradesman. It will equip students with both the basic and fundamental skill necessary in the field of Mechanical Fitting, and Metal Machining. Each course is divided into two main areas. (Practical and Theoretical). The duration The duration of each course is designed to run over a two (2) year or 1200 hours on a full-time basis while the part-time courses scheduled for a three (3) years or 1600 hours. These courses were designed for the purpose of training Mechanical Engineering Craftsmen for the fitting and machining areas.
