  • Overview

    The module introduces students to the wide range of material forming type manufacturing processes which are currently used in manufacturing industry (forging, rolling, bending, piercing, extrusion, drawing, welding). The module will develop an understanding of and a capacity to select the optimum manufacturing process for the production of products. This will be achieved by developing a working knowledge and understanding of the factors involved in the operation of each manufacturing process using analytical equations. Students are expected to attend and contribute to lectures and tutorials, engage in assignments through both online and class room delivery.

    Learning Outcomes
    1. Demonstrate a solid grounding in analytical techniques used to determine the forces and stresses involved in manufacturing processes such as; Forging, rolling, bending, piercing and punching, drawing and extrusion
    2. Apply analysis to metal forming processes such as welding and related processes
    3. To combine all of the analytical calculations into one large manufacturing design for the production of engineering components in terms of a project assignment, writen and submitted individually.

Course Disclaimer

Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.

ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.

Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
