MET 121 - Manufacturing Processes I
A basic study of manufacturing materials and processes, such as: cutting-tool materials and cutting fluids, electrical discharge machining, properties of materials, drilling and related hole making processes, joining processes and equipment, producing and processing ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Laboratory exercises provide an opportunity for actual practice in the operation of selected manufacturing equipment.
1 Class Hour, 3 Laboratory Hours
