Only for CAS in Applied Manufacturing Technology and MAS in Applied Technology.
The module discusses the most important manufacturing processes and technologies driving Industry 4.0, including both traditional and advanced manufacturing. The course will cover a wide variety of modern forming, shaping and joining techniques. Further, it will introduce advanced technology such as non-conventional machining, micromanufacturing and additive manufacturing.
The module will reveal the fundamental link between materials properties and processing, and will thus provide a basis for the discussion of product design considerations from the viewpoint of manufacturing processes.
