TOOL AND DIE ENGINEERING

 

Major domain areas in the programme

Mechanical Tool and Die technicians play a key role in manufacturing and service industries.
Both traditional machining skills and advanced computer aided manufacturing (CAM)
techniques are used to create manufacturing or production equipments, jigs, fixtures,
moulds and dies for industries. This three year diploma course addresses the rapid changes in
technology that have caused a revolution in tool and die making methods, bringing innovations
in production processes.

Future Prospects

Diploma holders in Tool and Die making are qualified for jobs such as press tool making, mould
making, general machine quality control and process planning and estimating. They are also
qualified for technical sales roles in industries including automotive manufacturing, aerospace,
urban transit, and other automated production environments. They mainly have their future as
technician in the area of tool design and manufacturing.

They can pursue higher education in the field of mechanical engineering or their specialized
field itself.
