Content and learning outcomes
The course is divided into five thematic sections:
- CNC machining, maching economics and quality control
- Design and analysis of manufacturing machines
- Advanced subjects for research-based studies
- Laboratory exercises
- Study visits to companies
Key concepts in the course are
- CNC machining
- Machining economics and productivity
- Quality control and measurement techniques
- Machine tool design and machine dynamics
- Advanced machining processes
- Additive manufacturing
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, the student should be able to:
- analyse conventional (cutting) machining processes and selected advanced machining processes, regarding their applicability and technical adequacy in a given manufacturing environment
- interpret tolerances in engineering drawings and use this understanding to plan and carry out measurements of given engineering components
- measure and analyse the dynamic characteristics of the manufacturing system, i.e machine tools, cutting tools, workpiece, fixturing and cutting process, and their relation to quality and productivity
- analyse advanced additive manufacturing processes nd their potential for new opportunities
- do qualified economic calculations for conventionl machining processes, given specific preconditions for material, tools and productivity
- independently explore, review, document and present research based tasks on advanced concepts in manufacturing technology
Literature and preparations
Minimum of 45 cr of second cycle courses completed and

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INLA - Homework Assignments, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LABA - Workshop Laboratory Exercises, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- STU1 - Study visit, 0.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN2 - Written exam, 4.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- 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.
