Ensuring that practical teaching areas and workshops are properly managed and maintained.

  • Assisting students with research projects.
  • Maintaining and repairing machines and equipment found in the laboratory.
  • Supporting the work of teachers in classes and laboratory sessions and giving technical advice to staff and students.

  • Writing reports, reviews, and summaries.
  • Staying up to date with relevant and scientific developments.
