EN 181 Manufacturing Processes
EN 181 Manufacturing Processes 3
The course provides a comprehensive introduction to the processes used in the manufacture of plastic and metal products. It is a practical course that requires the use of machine tools and casting aluminum. Therefore, students should expect to be exposed to sharp edges as well as hot and molten material. The course will naturally require students to stand for extended periods and participate in physical activity. The concepts discussed in the textbook will be reinforced with hands-on experience; ultimately informing design and the tradeoffs in choice of materials, features, and process selection. Includes several field trips to manufacturing facilities.
