Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

In the course, you will study common manufacturing processes and systems and get an insight into the complete production process. Numerically controlled machine tools are central components in a modern manufacturing company. You will have the opportunity to use such machines all the way from the design, programming, rigging and test run, to the manufacturing of parts. Other areas that are treated in the course are engineering drawings as a means of communication, common polymer materials, characteristics of surfaces and basic industrial metrology techniques used to verify function and quality.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course with a passing grade the student should be able to:

  • define concepts, explain phenomena and use correct terminology in respective subject areas
  • describe the function and use of common machines, equipment and systems
  • explain principles and state preconditions and results for different manufacturing processes
  • carry out manufacturing engineering calculations
  • use process planning techniques for manufacturing of simple parts in a mechanical workshop
  • use industrial metrology techniques for verification of function and quality
  • handle measuring tools and equipment for cutting processing, sheet metal forming, welding and casting by means of instructions
