M E 465 Introduction to Manufacturing Laboratory (1)
This laboratory course provides an integrated approach to Manufacturing Science and Engineering. The laboratory examines common techniques for fabricating parts; providing an introduction to several basic processes for creating both metallic and polymeric parts. As a part of this course, students will be exposed to compressive, tensile, sheet, bending, casting and powder metal processes. Using basic material science principles, students will examine concepts such as material flow, springback, and cold working. The course requires hands-on involvement by the students in the planning of experiments as well as data manipulation and analysis of results. The laboratory exercises are intended to provide students with a broad appreciation of the breadth of Manufacturing Science and Engineering. Students work in groups. Written reports and in-class exercises are the primary basis for grading.
This course is a technical elective.
