Course Objectives

This lab focuses on providing the students hands-on experience in assembly and disassembly of mechanical components, in wood preservation methods & woodworks and in the use of electrical equipment and appliances. The lab also aims to give an insight of using machine tools, forging and welding. In this lab, the students will also be able to design and fabricate beginner level printed circuit boards. In nutshell, the lab is packed with activities covering diverse fields and serves to broaden the vision of the students
