This course focuses on the processes by which materials are economically processed into different shapes. The student understands the principles and practical knowledge of different materials processes and applies that knowledge when considering the geometry, functionality, and materials required for a product. Topics include processes for metal, polymers, and ceramics; machining, casting, forming, joining, sheet metal, extrusion, additive methods (3D printing), and coating processes.
