The College of Engineering Students who are enrolled in the (UON) new programs Mechanical Engineering(BEng) Program, Electrical &Electronic Engineering Program (BEng) in addition to the existing the Interior Design Engineering Program has organized a site visit to the “Fab Lab Bahrain”, the aim of this visit is to develop the students’ knowledge, their skills and to show them the different types of Engineering Machines and their applications such as, CAD, CAM, CNC Machines besides to the Milling and Lathe Machines and Laser Cutter Machine. The Engineering Students also have an idea about the Electronic Soldering Tools and Repair workshop.
The students participated in doing some paperwork on how to perform 3D objects which is the first step of the design.
The site visit was supervised by Dr. Osama Al-Rawi the Dean of the College of Engineering. He raised up the importance of the visit to develop the students’ skills and to show them as well the different types of machines, it’s functions how does it work and it’s applications in different engineering projects.
Finally the students discussed together with the site supervisor the different types of the real projects and applications of these machines in Bahrain which are designed and implemented by the Fab Lab Bahrain.
