Before choosing courseMG1000 Mechanical Workshop Practice 3.0 creditsAdministrate About course

A course for students who wish to get practical experience of machine tool usage. You will learn to handle machine tools in the Production Engineering department workshop, in lab exercises and an individual assignment, and after passing the course you will get a "driver's licence' for giving you the possibility to work in the workshop.

N.B.! As the number of applicants always exceeds maximum number of participants, selection of admission will be done by drawing lots. When admitted students cancel their participation, admission should be granted to students from the waiting list in due order. No admission should be granted to other students!
