Course Description This course comprises theoretical knowledge and extended practical training carried out in workshops equipped to industry standards. Students will be expected to participate individually and in teams to fabricate welded products.  They will learn how to analyse and generate solutions to typical fabrication using thin plates and pipes.

Students will also be given the opportunity to follow an apprenticeship to improve their hands-on experience.

In order to be able to appreciate the importance of good production management, supervised visits to  complex production set-ups are organised during the course.
