Materials & Processes 1 introduces basic knowledge of materials and processes commonly used by product designers and manufacturers at various scales of production. As the first in a four course sequence, Materials & Processes 1 begins the foundation for understanding how a product works and how it can be made better, safer, and more sustainability. As a seminar, assignments will be both individual and team based, and will include a number of on-site field-trips. Extensive product ‘forensics’ or disassembly will be used to demonstrate state-of-the-art methods of how materials were processed.
