Unit Code: MCD656

Unit Name: Advanced Manufacturing Technology

Description: Students are expected to apply advanced manufacturing processes for producing a mechanical component. In this course, you will grow and analyse models of complex physical processes, make mould design, assess material microstructural changes in welding processes and predict the mechanical behaviour of the finished product. You will also create and analyse models of complex physical processes such as computer numerical control. This course allows students to demonstrate overall competency in advanced manufacturing and its specific operations.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students should be able to: 1. Gather engineering knowledge from advanced manufacturing processes standards and codes of practice and identify the most relevant. 2. Safely implements laboratory test and measurement procedures. 3. Understands the range of manufacturing processes available, selects a suitable process and explains the selection including consideration of the limitation of the tools available. 4. Identifies operational hazards and sets out relevant steps to be taken to lower the risk to public health and safety. 5. Presents clearly written reports for both technical and lay audiences, as is appropriate. 6. Demonstrates self-awareness of own level of competence and identifies opportunities to extend own competence in a timely manner.
