A professional technical staff is always assigned for consultation and guidance on practical manufacturing skills.Students can tackle advanced processing of parts using machines such as lathes, milling machines,welding equipment and laser processing machines, which can process acryl,wood, paper, fabrics and stone. This is not used only in Mechanical System Engineering and Intelligent Mechanical Engineering classes, but also for student extracurricular activities and faculty research.
