Programme Brief

Sheet Metal fabricators design and create structural metal parts for a variety of industries, including auto, medical, food, shipbuilding and construction, in this programme, students will develop core competencies in fabrication method and the design & development of the sheet metal product to develop a complete set of metal-working

The student will be able to analyze, design and produce blueprint of a sheet metal product with design software and prototype by using the appropriate manufacturing process. Training is accomplished with
state-of-the-art equipment, including Computer Numerical Control (CNC) press brake forming, CNC precision punching, CNC precision plasma cutting, etc. for which students will be taught on how to generate program via CAM software and operate manual and CNC sheet metal processing machineries .

The student will be given the opportunity to fabricate projects from the ground up, applying theory and practice together with communications skills, lean manufacturing practices and quality applications used in
today’s advanced manufacturing companies .
