|Trade Diploma in Mechanical Engineering / Plant Engineering (DME/DPE)|
PEN510: Machine Design
This unit is concerned to develop students concepts of the design process and the production of standard components. The role of standards, tolerances. Materials selection, specification and production techniques should be clearly understood in the process of successful design. Students should be encouraged to analyze and discuss current and traditional engineering design solutions to expand their understanding of design restraint and product demand.
PEN509: Manufacturing Technology (DME)
This unit enables the development of the advanced knowledge required for competency in manufacturing engineering. The basic topics include processes, measurements, method study, and work measurement, machining and testing of materials. This unit should be approached in such a way that the student develops an understanding of the technological processes involved in mechanical and production engineering so that an analytical approach is developed to some of the problems associated with the processes. Industrial visits are an important aspect of this unit.
PEN515: Quality Assurance
This unit basically broadens the knowledge and skills required for competency in learning engineering related units. Topics include organization of quality assurance, design aspects of quality assurance, inspection systems, defect prevention systems and quality awareness. Students would be encouraged to apply logical analytical reasoning to a variety of problems within the scope of this descriptor. Students are to carry out projects and assignments along with the class activity.
