Compulsory workshop training course for Chemical and Process Engineering students.
The learning outcomes will be as follows:Basic workshop practice Understand safety requirements for engineering manufacturing workshopsUse an engineering vernier calliper and micrometer for measuring partsInterpret a simple engineering drawingBasic machining practicesSafely use a lathe to turn a simple component Safely use a milling machine to make a simple face cutApply oil quench heat treatmentWelding workshop Understand safety requirements for welding workshopsUse manual metal arc processes (arc welding) to make groove and fillet weldsTest welds, e.g. butt welds to destruction with U bend test and section cut on a bandsaw and, ( if time allows) fillet welds in destructive bend testIdentify typical visual weld defects and explain causesNote that the projects may change from time to time. Also, the amount of time spent on the various activities varies with discipline.
Subject to approval of the Dean of Engineering

EXEMPTIONSExemptions from the Workshop Training Course may be granted by the course supervisor for the Department of Chemical & Process Engineering. Normally this will only be considered for: • NZCE/Diploma students• an engineering trade qualification• equivalent course done elsewhere• substantial formal work experience (self-taught experience in a home workshop will not usually be sufficient grounds for exemption) Those students who believe they may be eligible for an exemption should apply early in their first year of Professional study.
