General Information


This unit offers extended information on material behaviours and manufacturing properties, principles of manufacturing processes and technologies. The unit aims to deepen the understanding of the material selection process and enables you to identify appropriate manufacturing processes for a particular product design and development. You will study a wide variety of manufacturing processes such as bulk deformation processes, material removal processes, finishing and joining processes, micro/nano scale manufacturing, and other modern manufacturing techniques and learn product design, quality management, and manufacturing in a competitive environment. You will apply information literacy skills to obtain relevant engineering information and identify appropriate standards and practices.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Optional Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Have your say source; UC and Lecturer


Major manufacturing processes would be good to learn in more depth.


On top of in-class learning, planned manufacturing industry visit, starting from Term 2, 2021, for students of all campuses will help students to learn a wider spectrum of machine manufacturing practices.

Feedback from Have your say


Feedback was informative but could be improved


Keep providing comprehensive written feedback in the assignment document indicating the errors and mistakes, amendments and sources where this can be learned more.

Feedback from Have your say source


More concise lecture and more videos on processes.


Provide industry-based short videos. 1 hr lecture, 1 hr tutorial, and 1 hr drop-in session.
