  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Subject element Materials & Manufacturing Processes deals with the prerequisites for qualified selection of materials and manufacturing processes based on professional and interdisciplinary parameters.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about:
     the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods, including:
    o (1) physical properties of and suitable manufacturing processes for:
    • metals, particularly steel and aluminium
    • plastic, elastomers and composites
    • wood
    • ceramics
    • new materials.
    o (2) surface and heat treatment of various materials
    o (1) joining technologies
    o (1) machining processes
    o (2) choice of materials in a sustainability perspective
    o (2) materials testing.
     practice and key applied theories and methods as well as the profession’s use of theories and methods, including:
    o (2) material properties and their implications for a product development process
    o (1) manufacturing processes and their implications for the quality and price of the final product.

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:
     apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:
    o (1) the use of databases/reference books for the provision of data on materials, including
    • physical properties
    • manufacturing processes
    • environment/sustainability.
     assess practice-orientated issues and suggest and select possible solutions, including:
    o (1) selection of materials based on their properties and design requirements
    o (1) identification, assessment and recommendation of suitable manufacturing processes
    o (2) identification of relevant material properties in relation to the function of a product and subsequent assessment and selection of suitable materials
    o (2) assessment of the relationship between materials, manufacturing processes and sustainability
    o (2) assessment of materials and manufacturing process from an environmental perspective
    o (2) recommendation of manufacturing processes based on realisability.
     communicate practice-orientated issues and solutions to partners and users in relation to materials and manufacturing processes.

    Competences

    The student will learn to:
     manage development-orientated situations, including:
    o (2) contributing to the choice of materials and manufacturing processes based on a holistic understanding of the realisable manufacture of the product/service.
     participate in academic and interdisciplinary cooperation based on a professional approach, including:
    o (2) interdisciplinary cooperation on the selection of materials and manufacturing processes taking into account the framework provided by the other core areas.
     acquire new knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to material properties and manufacturing processes in a structured context.
