Course Objectives To introduce the general characteristics of manufacturing processes related to industrial design;
To explain design related aspects of shaping, joining, and surface treatment processes;
To show the link between material selection, manufacturing processes, and industrial design.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Students will be able to interpret different production methods and their applications.
  • Students will be able to determine which of the production technologies are suitable for a given product or material.
  • Students will be able to identify factors that can affect production methods.
  • Students will be able to interpret the effects of new designs or design modifications on production processes
  • Students will be able to use their practical skills in selected production technologies
Course Description This course explores production technologies including shaping, joining, and surface treatment. Design related aspects of production methods are covered. The course also aims to show the link between material selection, manufacturing processes, and industrial design. Inclass theoretical lectures are supported by projects and field trips to help students build a practical sense of production technologies.
