Learning outcomes

After completing the course the student should be able to:

  • account for how rawmaterials for common industrial products are produced.
  • explain the principles for manufacturing of different materials in bulk (metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, paper)
  • understand how the properties of materials influence the choice welding methods of within and between different types of materials
  • understand and argue for different methods of forming, depending on material.
  • For a given material judge what is a suitable method for manufacturing, forming and welding, for small and large scale production respectively
  • understand the influence of economical, ethical and environmental aspects when choosing a method.

Content
