MFG 162 - Applied Materials for Manufacturing Credits: 2
Modular, group-paced course that includes basic introduction to the manufacture and structure of metals, the effects of alloying elements and heat treatment of steel, as well as various destructive and non-destructive testing methods. Emphasizes metallurgy in manufacturing processes and machinability of various types of materials.
Prerequisite: Instructor consent.
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Use basic vocabulary associated with metals and heat treating processes.
- Interpret the SAE/AISI designation system for steels and aluminums.
- Describe the effects of various heat treatment processes.
- Explain the effects of various alloying elements on machinability of metals.
- Explain the use of Rockwell and Brinell hardness testers and convert between scales.
- Explain the procedure and significance of tensile and other material tests.
Identify and describe basic tool and project materials.
- Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
- Responsibility - Responsibility encompasses those behaviors and dispositions necessary for students to be effective members of a community. This outcome is designed to help students recognize the value of a commitment to those responsibilities which will enable them to work successfully individually and with others.
