Technologies and Mechanical Processes

Objectives

The objectives of this course is to provide a general and integrated overview of the life cycle of products puting some emphasis in the materials and its charcateristics as weel as in the manufacturing processes. The course also provides an engineering  perspective in product development, starting in the functional specifications and ending in the production systems and inpsection.

By accomplishing this, the student shpould have developed the following competences:

Knowledge

- Knowledge concerning different materials (metals, ceramics, plymers ans composites), its properties ans main applications
- Knowledge concerning different production technologies
- Basic concepts of metrological inspection and related equipments

DO

- Materials selection according to the functional characteristics
- Selection of the right manufacturing technology for a given product
- Select the required metrological equipment for control
