DSGN 230: Machining Basics (1/2 unit)

Quarter Offered

Fall : Tuesday, 9am-12pm 5wk1, Ford Prototyping Lab ; Bob Taglia


No formal prerequisites.


The intent of this class is to introduce students to a range of basic manufacturing techniques. Students will learn machine tool technology theory and gain familiarity through hands-on practice with manual machine tools and other shop equipment.  All the skills taught will culminate in a final project which each student is expected to manufacture on their own. All students will be expected to complete safety training modules, even those who have already taken DTC. This course will provide more opportunity for hands-on practice with instructor support than is typically available in DTC.
