New Programme from Malta University Services Ltd Technologies for Competitive Manufacturing
This 15-hour course introduces the student to modern concepts, technologies and equipment that have become indispensable in todayís competitive manufacturing environment. The course is held over five lectures, each of which focuses on a particular technology. Each session consists of a theoretical introduction to the relevant concepts of the technology, followed by practical demonstrations using the high-technology equipment available in the DME laboratories. Equipment includes a state-of-the-art three axis vertical machining centre with a 21-tool automatic tool changer, a six-axis PUMA 260 industrial robot, fluid power equipment and PLCs, including facilities for building prototype and experimental flexible automation equipment, and fully equipped product design and development facilities running AutoCAD 2004.
The course is targeted towards persons with a technical background working in the manufacturing industry, as well as others occupying managerial positions in SMEís involved in manufacturing. The technologies that will be discussed and demonstrated during the course can be used either individually or collectively to improve a number of basic operating performance measures such as cost, time, and quality in production. Participants will obtain a clear understanding of the capabilities, limitations, and applications of the technologies, as well as an appreciation of the requirements associated with their installation and adoption.

AutoCAD LT - Level 1
 
This course meets the continuously growing needs within local industrial and service organisations for the professional training of personnel who want to be competent in Computer Aided Draughting and Design using AutoCAD, a leading CAD system.  The lecture handouts, which have evolved over our experience in AutoCAD training since 1989, are complemented with suitable case-studies and hands-on practical sessions on industry standard computers in an ergonomically designed computer laboratory.  By the end of the course, participants will have mastered AutoCAD in such a way as to be proficient in its diverse practical use.
 
AutoCAD 3D - Level 2
 
This module builds upon the CAD Level 1 course.  The aim is to provide the necessary theoretical and practical skills that give the course participants a leading edge in the advanced use of AutoCAD.  By the end of the course, participants will be proficient in the use of 3D modelling using AutoCAD.  For this purpose, the course covers diverse topics such as world and user co-ordinate systems, 3D model manipulation, surface modelling, solid modelling, Boolean operations and static rendering.  Next course scheduled to start shortly.
 
Who Should Attend:
 
These courses are aimed for any interested individuals including Architects, Engineers, and Teachers of Engineering drawing, Draughtsmen and Interior Designers.
