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.

Content and learning outcomes
In the course you will study the most common manufacturing processes and systems used in industry, to get an insight into the complete production process
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 run and manufacturing of components.
Other areas covered in the course are engineering drawings as a means of communication, common polymer materials and basic metrology techniques used to verify function and quality, as well as the characteristics of surfaces and surface treatment.
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student will be able to:
- define terms, explain phenomena and use correct terminology within different areas of manufacturing
- describe the function and use of common machines, equipment and systems
- explain priciples and state prerequisites and results for different manufacturing methods
- perform manufacturing calculations
- use process planning to prepare for manufacturing of simple components in a mechanical workshop
- use basic metrology to verify the function and quality of a manufactured product
- handle measurement devices and equipment for machining, sheet metal forming, welding and casting following instructions
