Mechanical Workshop

The main aim of the mechanical workshop at Nile University is to introduce students to the basic concepts of manufacturing via shaping, forming, machining, CNC machining and assembly. Through the different experiments we offer to our students, they can develop a knowledge of appropriate parameters to be used for various machining operations and learn the basic use of machine tools and workshop equipment. We also introduce the role of manufacturing in an economy and make students aware of the necessity to manage different manufacturing processes and systems for the best use of material and human resources with emphasis on product safety and environmental considerations. The workshop also includes equipment for basic cutting processes such as drilling and reaming, turning and boring, shaping and planning, milling, broaching, filing, sawing, tapping and grinding. Moreover, the students can identify the limitations of various machining processes regarding shape formation and surface quality and the impact this has on design. Through our learning process, students understand the procedures and techniques involved for the manufacturing of components and keep up to date with innovation. They can also describe and explain applications of the most common bulk and sheet forming and comprehend the potential of more advanced manufacturing processes such as Rapid Prototyping, EDM, Cold Spray and LASER based methods.
