Introduces the concepts, terms, and application of advanced manufacturing principles and practices and explores the role of mechatronic systems in the manufacturing process. Includes operations management, industry standards, basic heating and refrigeration, and maintenance. Explores applications of robots, computers, and control systems in a manufacturing environment. Prerequisites: IRW 115 or WR 115, MTH 65, or equivalent placement. Audit available.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate knowledge of operations management in a manufacturing environment.
- Apply industry standards and record keeping in a manufacturing environment.
- Identify the role of mechatronic systems in a manufacturing environment.
- Troubleshoot and repair electro-mechanical systems in a manufacturing environment.
Suggested Outcome Assessment Strategies
Evaluation is done via labs, quizzes, take home assignments, in class exercises, and exams.
Course Activities and Design
The determination of teaching strategies used in the delivery of outcomes is generally left to the discretion of the instructor. Here are some strategies that you might consider when designing your course: lecture, small group/forum discussion, flipped classroom, dyads, oral presentation, role play, simulation scenarios, group projects, service learning projects, hands-on lab, peer review/workshops, cooperative learning (jigsaw, fishbowl), inquiry based instruction, differentiated instruction (learning centers), graphic organizers, etc.
