    What is the programme about?
    Precision Engineering is the manufacture of parts and assemblies of part with high tolerances to specific dimension utilising highly accurate machines. This Level 6 higher certificate in Precision Engineering has been designed with industry to respond to the needs of the Precision Engineering industry for skilled, knowledgeable and competent technicians and engineers.

    At the core of this programme is the Industry need to have graduates capable of becoming highly trained and educated CNC programmers, machine setters and operators in world class manufacturing industries. This is a workshop/lab based programme with hands-on experience on state-of-the-art CNC machines, CAM software and metrology equipment. Students will learn the theory, maths and science aspects of engineering to support their practical work. Students will work as individuals and in groups on a variety of industrial standard engineering projects.

    This programme can be completed in two years full time. First year of the programme is offered on a full time basis but second year may be taken either full time or part-time by taking two years to complete one academic year while working part-time. Programme graduates will work as highly skilled technicians in world class manufacturing environments and will be highly skilled in areas of CNC machining, CAD/CAM, and metrology. Students will be able to progress to the Level 7 add-on Precision Engineering programme within LIT or other programmes in a similar cognate area.

    Programme Aims:
    A person who has completed this programme will be able to:
    • Create CNC programme using manual G-coding and CAM
    • Create 3D models of components using CAD
    • Manufacture precision components and assemblies using world class equipment
    • Interpret engineering drawings and carry out model based inspection of components
    • Measure components accurately and compare with drawings
    • Drive process improvements/capacity increases through new technology / equipment selection and specification.
    • Work with engineers and designers to manufacture components to the highest standards.
