Requisite(s): 48610 Introduction to Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering
Anti-requisite(s): 41053 Materials and Manufacturing Engineering A
Recommended studies:

Students should review the knowledge learned in chemistry and physics to make sure they understand the fundamentals of materials, mechanics and electrics, etc. It is suggested to study Chapters 1 - 4 in the required textbook before Week 1 for an understanding of the knowledge of materials related to manufacturing.

Fields of practice: Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics Engineering and Mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering majors



This subject explains the principles of modern manufacturing and provides examples of manufacturing processes involved in casting, forming, machining and joining of materials. Students are required to identify and describe the manufacturing process by which products are made of different materials: metals, polymers, ceramics and composites; demonstrate improved technical written and graphical communication skills by completion of specified project reports; and demonstrate basic problem-solving skills relating to manufacturing and production. Students learn the processes and materials available, as well as a competent and practical approach to evaluating, selecting and recognising the connections between the materials/processes and engineering design.
