Precision Engineering

Overview
Precision Engineering (PE) is the backbone for industries as diverse as aerospace, oil and gas, medical devices and electronics. It enables any custom piece or moving part to be designed and made to exact specifications, and makes advanced manufacturing possible – from robotic arms that put together the most sought-after sports cars, mobile devices and high-powered lasers to building 3D printers that ‘print’ skin tissue and aerospace components.

If you are keen on turning brilliant ideas into leading edge technologies that we use in our everyday lives, we invite you to join PE industry.

WSQ programmes provide training in the skills and competencies required for the following job roles:

  • Machinist/Technician
  • Senior Machinist/Technician
  • Process Specialist/Shift Leader/Group Leader/Team Leader
  • Master Craftsman
  • Assistant/Associate Engineer
  • Chief Engineer
