Materials & Processes 2 teaches students about specific qualities of materials and manufacturing processes that product designers currently use, and could potentially use in the future. Students learn guidelines for material and process selection and implementation -- and how to approach sustainable/conscientious specification. Additional topics covered include sourcing (how to find manufacturers to make a product) and cost analysis (how to determine how much a product will cost to produce). This class consists of a combination of lectures, field-trips to manufacturing and fabrication sites, as well as projects. Through these activities, the course aspires to instill a spirit of empowerment and currency in engaging venders, materials, and manufacturing processes.
