Prerequisites 

None

Description 

This is a design oriented course that introduces the students to a much wider spectrum of manufacturing processes than can be covered in ENME 371 or ENME 382. The emphasis is on understanding the advantages and limitations of each process so that intelligent choices about manufacturing processes can be made in other project courses like ENME 472 and in professional practice. The key influence of material properties on manufacturing quality and cost will be shown.
