Design and Production of Forging Processes


The certificates that give access to this post-cycle specialized professionalization programme are the following:
• High Level Mechanical Manufacturing Design Technician.
• High Level Production Programming in Mechanical Manufacturing Technician.
• High Level Industrial Mechatronics Technician.


It is a specialization created to train technicians specialized in forging. A large number of forging companies are located in the region of Alto Deba and the surrounding areas. In the absence of specific training focused on forging, a plan to meet this need was launched in 2005 under the name “Maiatz”. In fact, the cold and hot forge has undergone a great technological evolution.

The complexity of the manufactured components, their specifications, the development of presses, the automation of the processes that require highly qualified people. In developing this plan, the launch of the Cold Forging Speciality in 2008 was an important milestone.

Returning to the current specialty, it has been from 2016 when it has gone on to offer and complete the specialty of forging in its totality, attaching to those of cold, contents and specific formation of hot forging.

Training is carried out in the DUAL mode; In other words, in the simultaneous format of learning and work”, the student will carry out the training with a contract or scholarship focused on that period, with the collaboration of different companies.
