Mechanical Technology

Department of Mechanical Technology (MET)

Our main objective is teach technology related to Designing of Machine Components, Manufacturing Drawings, Analyzing of Product’s quality, computer numerical, control machines and engineering materials

At the Department of Mechanical Technology (MET) students learn the basics and fundamentals of Machine Components Design and Operations, Workshop Management, Human Resource Management, and Process Planning and Control in a Manufacturing Organization.

The Mechanical Department offers specialization courses in Machinist, on NVQ Level 4, and Production Technology on NVQ Levels 5 and 6 respectively.

Students who have successfully completed these courses have secured significant job opportunities in manufacturing industries
