Develop professional activity in the Production Department dedicated to Mechanical Manufacturing in companies, both self-employed and employed.


The contents of this course are part of the knowledge required to design products to be obtained by mechanical manufacturing, taking into account the regulations
applicable regarding quality, occupational risk prevention and environmental protection.

This course belongs to the Competence Unit No. 1 of the Professional Certificate "Design of Mechanical Manufacturing Products".
