Introduction to Engineering Techniques
In this global economy, parts for complex engineering products are manufactured around the world and shipped to a single location for final assembly. Have you ever wondered how these products can be designed in one location, parts manufactured in another and then assembled into final products somewhere else? The answer lies in the ability of skilled engineers to communicate complex technical data in a variety of forms successfully across national boundaries and overcoming language barriers.
This unit will help you to develop your knowledge of the different ways that technical data is communicated, and presented and how information can be used to assist in the marking out and manufacture of components and assemblies. This will help develop your understanding of the engineering applications of ICT. You will learn how components are manufactured through developing an understanding of the importance of marking out and measuring, and of the types of work holding device, tool types and tool holding.
On completion of this unit a learner should:
- Understand forms of communication used in engineering
- Understand engineering applications of ICT
- Understand the basic tools and techniques used in engineering
- Understand measurement and marking out techniques
