21-3720 Manufacturing for Product Design


Understanding standard manufacturing methods for the most common materials (e.g., plastics, metals, ceramics, wood) as well as the larger global impacting manufacturing is an essential competency for a product designer. This course serves as an overview of such processes. Over the course of the semester, students visit local manufacturers to observe firsthand methods and processes involved in mass production, which may include such processes as injection molding, blow molding, metal stamping and forming, production slip casting, etc. Assignments relating to the various methods are assigned as studio-based projects to reinforce the learning.
