3320. Production and Manufacturing

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: ENGR 3315

Grading Basis: Graded

Introduces the key topics of material selection and sustainability into the manufacturing curriculum. Material selection is discussed in terms of both the product being produced as well as the production equipment employed in the process. Material selection is discussed throughout the course as part of 3 case studies and in the description of general manufacturing methods for plastics, metals and fluids. Sustainability is emphasized in two of the case studies focusing on biofuels and the use of biomass waste for construction materials. Interactions between these two themes are brought out in discussions on material selection criteria for end-of-life product handling.
