Students will become familiar with hand tools, machine tools and measuring instruments used by a typical industrial prototype workshop in industry. Using these tools and referring to appropriate diagrams, students will learn how to fabricate typical electrical and mechanical prototypes. Students further learn how to assemble, disassemble and reassemble mechanical and electrical components of industrial automated systems as they typically would in industry for the installation, maintenance and repair of these systems and to document their work. Content: Students will learn how to interpret schematic diagrams, and assembly and detail drawings for the creation of simple mechanical structures. They will also learn how parts are fabricated which includes marking-out and the operation and use of shears and bending brakes. Soldering, desoldering, rivetting, wiring, inspection and testing will also be covered. Safety in the workshop will be stressed at all times.
