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.

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023

Mixed Mode

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 Unit Evaluation


Topics were practical and interesting to learn.


To keep the unit content and assessments widely industry-oriented for better career outcomes for graduates.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation


The industry site visit was helpful to understand several manufacturing processes.


Continue industry site visits for all campuses and for all students. Visits are organised and coordinated by local academics. A written report on the visit constitutes Assignment 3 which is worth 20% of marks.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation


More videos or demonstrations of manufacturing processes would be appropriate.


Recommended sourcing more demo videos for wider learning.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation and UC


Short lectures and tutorials.


Proposed to revert back to 2-hour lectures and 2-hour tutorials to provide students with more time to assimilate the subject matter.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation


Inadequate explanation of assessments


Revise assessments and ensure they clearly convey what is required.

Feedback from Unit Evaluation


Due time return of marked assessments


Recommended returning marked assessments by the due date, as well as greater feedback helping further learning.
