The broadest of all engineering disciplines, mechanical engineering is concerned with the construction of machines. Mechanical engineers use physics and mathematics to design and develop everything from bicycles to factories. The principles within mechanical engineering are transferable to many industries such as transport, aircraft, robotics, weaponry and manufacturing plants.
Across the country, many companies are finding it difficult to recruit well-trained engineers to become part of their workforce. Undertaking training in mechanical engineering will give you the knowledge and skills required to be a great asset to engineering businesses in a range of specialisms.
Your Future is Bright
At CEMAST we are well equipped to teach basic, intermediate and advanced principles of mechanical engineering, with facilities including Computer Aided Design (CAD), Computer Numeric Control (CNC) lathe and milling machines as well as 3D printing resources.
