Course Code: CE4-A5-19

Course Duration: 3 Years Full-time

Course Description (English)

This course combines theoretical knowledge and practical training carried out in College-based industrial workshops. Learners will be expected to participate individually and in teams to fabricate welded products. They will learn how to analyse and generate solutions related to typical fabrication using thin plates and pipes. Learners will also be given the opportunity to follow an Apprenticeship to improve their hands-on experience. In order to be able to appreciate the importance of good production management, supervised visits to complex production set-ups are organised during the course. Applicants need to be able to work within the industries concerned.

Course Description (Malti)

Dan il-kors jikkombina l-għarfien teoretiku u t-taħriġ prattiku li jsir f’workshops industrijali bbażati fil-Kulleġġ. L-istudenti jkunu mistennija jipparteċipaw b’mod individwali u f’timijiet biex jiffabbrikaw prodotti wweldjati. Huma jitgħallmu kif janalizzaw u jiġġeneraw soluzzjonijiet relatati mal-fabbrikazzjoni tipika permezz ta’ pjanċi u pajpijiet irqaq. L-istudenti jingħataw ukoll l-opportunità li jsegwu Apprendistat biex itejbu l-esperjenza prattika tagħhom. Sabiex ikunu jistgħu japprezzaw l-importanza ta’ ġestjoni tajba talproduzzjoni, matul il-kors jiġu organizzati żjarat sorveljati f’postijiet taxxogħol fejn il-produzzjoni hija kumplessa. Lapplikanti għandhom ikunu kapaċi jaħdmu fl-industriji kkonċernati. L-applikanti li jidħlu permezz taċ-Ċertifikat tal-Edukazzjoni Sekondarja jistgħu jiġu mitluba jagħmlu sena preparatorja addizzjonali f’Livell 4, jekk ma jkollhomx esperjenza jew qatt ma jkunu ġew esposti għal xogħol f’dan is-settur.
