DSGN 297: Manufacturing Basics (1/2 unit)

Quarter Offered

Spring : Tues, 9:00am-12:00pm, Ford Prototyping Lab ; Bob Taglia

Prerequisites

No formal prerequisites.

Description

The intent of this class is to introduce students to a range of basic manufacturing techniques, shop safety, and basic metrology.   Students will learn machine tool technology theory and gain familiarity through hands-on practice with manual machine tools and other shop equipment.  Students will also gain a basic understanding of measurement and inspection.  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.
