84911 Advanced Manufacturing Technology

Requisite(s): 84711 User-centred Design OR 84712 Product Engineering



Since the turn of the century there has been a burgeoning in the development of radically new manufacturing processes and associated digital technologies. These are significant because they provide a shift in paradigm that disrupts established practices. For the designers of the future, changes to the nature of work and the organisation of industry have the potential to impact the very basics of their role and relationships they have with the products, as well as consumers and producers. This subject provides the students with the opportunity to learn first-hand the potential of cutting-edge manufacturing technology, and to explore the change to business models, production systems and the design and engineering science of products in order to prepare more effectively for the future of product design.
