Gear Technology Certificate

Gears are everywhere. They’re prevalent within cars, watches, wind turbines and most engineering devices. In the world of manufacturing, the intricate nature of gear technology makes quality training more important than ever. The Gear Technology Certificate focuses on improving your understanding of the manufacturing process that brings gear design concepts to life. Create complete drawings of gears, develop advanced analysis skills, build your knowledge base of modern gear systems and much more. This certificate allows you to analyze and work through design challenges you currently face in your own projects.

Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate your functional knowledge of modern gear system design and analysis
  • Participate in group projects to strengthen hands-on design perspective
  • Formulate drawings that convey complete and unambiguous definitions of gears
