Welding and drilling at Trinity College Mechanical Engineering Workshops

As part of my Manufacturing Engineering Design module of Senior Freshman year, I took part in several workshop sessions which allowed me to be introduced to basic practical manufacturing processes such as Welding and Drilling.

In a real-life configuration and under the supervision of a specialist in this field, I welded pieces of steel together with a specific welding metal ; I created an aluminium piece that I had to cut using tools with different precision, then drill holes in the piece and finally finish the surface by sanding.
