This course supplements an on-the-job training and broadens vocational skills acquired by students during their full-time education. It also refreshes knowledge in areas such as industrialisation processes (design, automated systems, supervision, etc.), to better understand the digital transformation for production tools.
The goal is to provide trainees with skills-sets that meet business needs. Once trainees complete the course, they have the required skills to work as design, manufacturing and maintenance technicians.
The course includes theory-based lectures, presentations and exercises with practical work and a workplace project, to be completed in teams of two, in the following subject areas: computer-aided drafting, design and manufacturing, numerically-controlled machine tools, production system management, robotics and dimensional metrology. Workplace projects can be undertaken with partner companies or with IMT LIlle Douai. The training course finishes with a 7-week work placement.
Trainees are jointly supervised by a business tutor and a professor from IMT LIlle Douai. Practical work features highly in this training course.

Material resources required for this course include, Computer Science and Control Systems Department laboratories, lecture rooms and practical labs, especially a room equipped with workstations to teach CAD/CAM. Some of the equipment used includes:
- for CAD-CAD/CAM: Windows-operated workstations + CAD/CAM software applications (Creo Elements/Pro, Solidworks, Inventor, Catia V5)
- for robotics: development workstations, programming and simulation tools:
- machine tools: lathes, milling machines, non-standard machining (water jet cutting systems)
- for computer-aided process engineering: eMPower
- Programmable controllers (Schneider, GE-Fanuc, Siemens, Allen-Bradley, etc.),
- 4 and 6 axis KUKA robots – software and robotics,
- SCHNEIDER – TELEMECANIQUE learning platform,
- COGNEX vision system,
- IFIX industrial supervision software application,
- MAT LAB Simulink, etc.
Trainees can access equipment and materials outside lecture times. Anyone who wishes to, can access equipment during building opening hours.
Teaching staff include full-time members of staff who train engineers, conduct research and develop technology transfer activities for industry
