IE 320 Manufacturing Processes
Principles of materials processing used in manufacturing; casting, forming, machining, welding, and related techniques such as numerical and computer control.
IE 600 Additive Manufacturing Processes
This course introduces students to additive manufacturing, also known as rapid prototyping or 3D printing, processes. An overview of all additive manufacturing processes is provided. Projects are used to develop in-depth knowledge in key applications of additive manufacturing. Design project gives students an opportunity to apply their knowledge to the design and/or re-design of a component.
IE 601 Additive Manufacturing Structure Design
This course focuses on the overview of design issues in additive manufacturing (AM), including the design of structures, materials and processes. The students are expected to gain in-depth understanding of the design issues with current AM technologies. Hands-on projects will be assigned that gives the students the opportunity of understanding the design issues and applying the knowledge to the design of functional parts and assemblies.
