Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Previously taught knowledge and skills in the field of production engineering are applied in hands-on laboratory exercises. The course introduces students to the use of the most common machine tools and the basics of NC- and CAD/CAM -programming. Students work in a small group and conduct small-scale empirical research in various laboratory exercises. The methods and the research results are reported in written research reports.
