Outline Syllabus:
Identification and selection of processes for the manufacture of components or systems in the electrical or manufacturing industries. Merits of the process. Production equipment required. Health and Safety considerations. Impact of the production process on the properties/operation of the component. Methods for the evaluation of the final component.
Students will identify an appropriate component or system for which they have been responsible at their place of work and analyse its production using the key concepts presented in the support material.
The range of components or systems covered in the support material will depend upon the industries contributing students to the cohort at a given Partner Institution.
