Course Code: TMJ2OR
This course introduces students to the manufacturing/design industry by giving them an opportunity to design and fabricate robots using a variety of processes, tools, and equipment. Students will learn about technical drawing, properties and preparation of materials, and design/manufacturing techniques. Student projects will include a robotic challenge, a design challenge, and a fabrication project involving processes such as machining, welding, drilling, cutting or 3D printing. Students will develop an awareness of environmental and societal issues related to robotic manufacturing, and will learn about secondary and post-secondary pathways leading to careers in the design, manufacturing and engineering industries.
