Manufacture Materials Design (T805)

Introducing materials processing from the perspective of a design engineer, this online module explores how to make components. You will focus on the interactions between manufacturing, materials and design rather than studying each one independently. Online texts are combined with investigative learning activities to help you develop the ability to make manufacturing decisions. The manufacturing processes covered are casting, forming, cutting, joining, additive manufacturing, and surface engineering. By gaining a deeper understanding of the scientific and technological principles that govern these basic processes, you will be able to play a more effective role as a professional engineer. Additional topics introduce management of the supply chain and key ideas in assuring the quality of production. Manupedia, an online database of manufacturing processes, plays a key role in your study.
