Description:

The objective for this course is to expose the student to as many aspects of manufacturing as possible in the time available. This will include properties of materials as well as the processes that convert these materials into specific products. Particular attention will be given to machining processes first so that the student may have a perspective for understanding. This will then be followed with examination of other manufacturing areas.

Throughout the course frequent assignments and/or quizzes will be used for each section of material.
