MET 201 - Designing for Materials, Manufacturing and Assembly
The student will be become competent in material selection and design optimization techniques necessary for today’s modern manufacturing and assembly processes.
Students will rate their own designs against manual and high speed robotic assembly techniques using state-of-the-art software tools.
Student prototypes are created using design geometry and selected materials matched to the appropriate manufacturing processes such as Injection Molding, CNC Machining, Casting and Forging.
Prerequisites: MET 101 or MET 121 or ENR 153
Course Learning Outcomes
1. Create part geometry containing essential elements for product assembly and manufacturing processes according to accepted industrial standards.
2. Utilize DFMA Software capable of analyzing part and assembly geometry.
3. Apply Geometric Data, DFMA, and Tolerancing to industry style projects in a simulated design team environment.
