Course Outcomes: 

Material Bahavior

Students will apply fundamental mathematical models to understand and estimate material behavior in manufacturing processes.

Part Processing Requirements

Students will be able to estimate the force and power (energy/time) requirements to process conventional parts, using modern tools and machines.

Electronics Manufacturing

Students will understand the importance of and tools used in electronics manufacturing.

Flexible Manufacturing Centers and Systems

Students will understand the control processes used in Flexible Manufacturing Centers and Systems.

Information Synthesis

Students will be able to select and review technical paper(s) relating to a course subject area, digest relevant course information, and correlate the results with the mathematical models discussed in the course, also rendering good judgment as to whether the paper is useful to modern manufacturing methods.
