The processing techniques used to manufacture materials and components is a very broad activity encompassing materials science, mechanical engineering, chemistry and economics. Commercial processing is now accomplished by automated and computer controlled equipment yet the engineers must understand the basic principles to program and control the parameters. This course is to develop the scientific base and fundamental nature of some common processes.
This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Materials Science and Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Materials Science and Engineering
At the end of the course, learners are able to:
1. Explain the relationships between basic concepts and design of the processing route;
2. Apply basic concepts to predict the material behaviour during processing;
3. Predict the structure and properties of the end products;
4. List the advantages and limitations of each process and;
5. Choose the best process for a particular component, device or material.
