Kalpakjian, S., Manufacturing Processes for Engineering Materials, 5th edition, Addison-Wesley,

Manufacturing has gained a wide economic base in the increasingly competitive market place.
Modern manufacturing involves making products from raw materials by various processes,
machinery, and operations, following a well-organized plan for each step. Mechanical
engineering students are expected to study the technological, organizational and economical
aspects of both conventional and modern manufacturing processes.
Course Objectives:
The purpose of this course is to
Discuss basic manufacturing processes and stress their capabilities and limitations.
Teach students to analyze material processing and manufacturing systems.
Relate the dependence of manufacturing process on material properties and of the integrity of
the manufactured part on processing method.
Prerequisites by topic:


Reading technical drawings.

Properties of engineering materials.
Phase diagrams.
Heat treatment processes.
Testing of materials.
College physics
College chemistry

Attendance and Discipline Policy

Attendance is MANDATORY and will be checked at the beginning of each lecture. Late coming is not
encouraged as it disturbs students and instructor. Three (03) late coming will be counted as one (01)
absence. Excuses for absence should be approved by the Deanship of Student Affairs and submitted to
the instructor within a week following the last day of absence or it will not be accepted.
Each unexcused absence will result in a loss of 0.5 point of the final grade of the course, with a
maximum loss of 4.0 points for excessive absences. A DN grade will be immediately reported for nine
(9) unexcused absences, according to the regulations. A DN grade will also be reported when the sum
of the excused and unexcused absences reaches twelve (12).
The use of Mobile devices is strictly prohibited during the lecture. Any such student will be expelled
from the lecture and marked absent for that lecture.
