Course Description

All modern economies need industries that are innovative in product design and efficient in the manufacture of these products. In turn, these industries need people who are knowledgeable about product design and manufacturing processes. This free online course will give learners a detailed understanding of manufacturing and product design by covering topics such as what design is, how to use models in product design, bringing ideas from concept to prototype to production, using the product design specification, manufacturing processes such as casting, forming, cutting and joining, surface engineering and optical materials engineering. There are also a number of case studies to review. This course is ideal for employees or professionals who want to learn more about product design and manufacturing processes, and for learners who would like a career in the areas of manufacturing or product design.
