Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

In the course you will study the most common manufacturing processes and systems used in industry.

Numerically controlled machine tools are important components of a modern manufacturing company. You will use these machines in activities throughout the design, programming, rigging, test drive and manufacturing of a steel component.

Other areas covered in the course are engineering drawings as a means of communication, common polymer materials, basic metrology techniques used to verify the function and quality, the technical characteristics of surfaces and surface treatment.

Classes include lectures, labs and company visits. Lectures deal with basic theory and applied technology, for each course section.

To develop your practical skills, the course includes hands-on laboratory exercises in our mechanical workshop.

Intended learning outcomes *

After completing this course you will be able to:

  • explain common cutting, shaping and joining manufacturing processes used in the manufacturing industry, and apply these processes to produce simple metal components
  • select a proper manufacturing process based on component size, shape, tolerances and mechanical properties
  • propose appropriate surface treatment methods, and give examples of technical and mechanical surface function,
  • develop a process plan for the manufacturing of simple metallic components, using manual or numerically controlled machine tools (lathes and milling machines), including selection of tools, calculation of cutting data, and generation of part programs
  • use basic metrology, to verify the function and quality of a manufactured product
  • create a manufacturing drawing including section and detail views, to specify dimensions and numerical tolerances
  • describe a typical product realization process (raw material -> design -> manufacturing -> product)

On the course website, a detailed description of specific learning outcome is specified for each part of the course

Ethical approach *

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
