The students of the Jigs & Fixtures Design and Manufacturing programme are prepared on how to programme CNC machines for accuracy and precision. The computer software programmes will be used to design parts and create programmes used on CNC machines performing production runs and job set-ups in a manufacturing environment. The students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of fundamental manufacturing methods, industrial processes and safe use of equipment as well as determine common programming codes and program format. Students gain real-world experience using actual full-size CNC machines to perform real production runs and job set-ups in the technologically-advanced era. Graduates are prepared for employment in both large manufacturing corporations and small precision machining companies such as automotive, aviation, military defense, aerospace and other types of advanced manufacturing facilities . Graduates can continue their education in industrial technology, engineering or business programs leading to jobs in management.
