Course Aim

This course is in the form of project work and is to a large extent localized at some of our partner companies. The course aims to give the student insight into different topics of machining such as machinability of materials, the material properties of the cutting tools and/or the possibilities and limitations of cutting techniques that are in use in the industry. The fundamental knowledge required in B0016T Machining is further developed in a short, well defined project work at a chosen company. Supervision is available at the company as well as at Bergsskolan. The students are supposed to perform self-reliant work in the form of a project and to practice the knowledge that was required in B0016T Machining. The project work will also increase the student’s skills in writinge technical reports.


The course is performed with SECO TOOLS as main collaborating partner company, but other companies are involved as well. The project work is done in groups of two or maximum three students and each project is unique. Each project is decided in collaboration with the company, the teacher and the examiner
