COMM-2172Communication for the Workplace
More Information

Welcome to an immersive experience that will give students hands-on practice in finding, getting, and keeping the job they want. Students will enter through the "Employment Centre", move to an active "Probation Period", and close with a meaningful "Performance Review". This course is a creative and participatory workplace preparation designed to give students a head start in today's competitive job market.

Prerequisites:
MANU-1081Introduction to CAD/CAM
More Information

Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of CAD/CAM using software commonly found in industry. Students will use the software to produce CNC programs for both turning and machining centers. 

Prerequisites:
MANU-1082Additive Manufacturing
More Information

Students will learn about additive manufacturing, broadly known as 3D printing, which is transforming how products are designed, produced and serviced. Instead of being held back by manufacturing constraints, you can design the component you need, focused only on the function it requires to perform. In addition, students will learn the background, terminology, and the fundamentals of designing for additive manufacturing and current additive manufacturing technology, as well as the advantages and limitations of 3D printing, materials and post-processing.

Prerequisites:
MANU-2010Manufacturing Processes and Business Economics
More Information

In this course, students are introduced to a related manufacturing (mass production) environment. Students become aware of the variety of materials and processes that are used in manufacturing industries. The course also introduces students to a number of practical considerations and common methods and philosophies that are used in the manufacturing world. Students will have the opportunity to transfer theoretical learning to practical applications through labs and a project.

Prerequisites:
MANU-2011CAD/CAM Applications
More Information

Students will learn to apply their previous learning of CAD/CAM software to produce CNC programs for various projects. Students will have an opportunity to produce programs for projects on both Machining Centres and Turning Centres.

Prerequisites:
MANU-2012Automation and Robotics
More Information

The course is designed to provide students with the basic knowledge and skills required to grasp how Manitoba’s manufacturing industry is using technology such as automation and robotics to compete in the global market.

MANU-2013Capstone Design and Planning
More Information

This course will provide students with the knowledge and skills to complete the design and production planning associated with their assigned Capstone Project. Production scheduling, time management, budgeting, material and supply acquisition are among the topics covered. Students will learn to work in a team setting and experience a supervisory role within their team. 

Prerequisites:
MANU-2017Capstone Project
More Information

This manufacturing project requires students to plan and complete the manufacturing of a product to specifications with minimal supervision. The project may involve processes such as design, selection, testing, process development, and problem analysis in a manufacturing context. Students will learn to work in a team setting and experience a supervisory role within their team.

Prerequisites:
MANU-2018Composite Manufacturing
More Information

The course is designed for individuals with an interest in the composite industry (aerospace/transportation). It will provide participants with the basic knowledge and skills required to a) fabricate honeycomb core details using various fabrication techniques for composite sandwich panels, b) work with composite materials for the fabrication of complex structural aerospace components, and c) repair defective composite structure.

Prerequisites:
MANU-2019CAD/CAM 2
More Information

This course is offered to allow students to expand their CAD/CAM capabilities by learning MasterCAM CAD/CAM software. This course will be delivered online and is self-directed. Students that are particularly interested in CNC programming will benefit from having the ability to program CNC machines using one of the most common CAD/CAM software packages.

Prerequisites:
MANU-3020Jig and Fixture Design
More Information

In this course, students will learn the theory which underpins designing jigs and fixtures. They will gain an understanding of tooling processes and the relationship of these tools to the machining and manufacturing areas.

Prerequisites:
MANU-3062CNC Machining Centre Operation 2
More Information

Students will learn more advanced set up and operation techniques through the completion of more complex projects. Students will also learn to troubleshoot and modify their programs created with CAD/CAM Software. Learning to create work holding fixtures for assigned projects will also be included.

Prerequisites:
MANU-3063CNC Turning Centre Operation 2
More Information

Students will learn more advanced set up and operation techniques through the completion of more complex projects. Students will also learn to troubleshoot and modify their programs created with CAD/CAM Software. 

Prerequisites:
MANU-3064CNC Probing
More Information

In this course, students will learn to use CNC probing for tool set up, work piece set up and work piece inspection. Students will design and create macro programs, for a Machining Centre equipped with an advanced probing system, which will inspect the machined part for dimensional accuracy and adherence to required specifications.

Prerequisites:
MANU-4062Advanced Multi-Axis CNC Machining
More Information

Students will learn basic 5 axis programming, set up and operation of advanced CNC Machining Centres. Through project-based learning, students will build an understanding of cutting-edge multi-axis CNC technology. Also included will be programming and set up of advanced 3 axis Turning Centre operations using “Live Tooling”.

Prerequisites:
MATH-2082Advanced Math for Manufacturing
More Information

This course is a continuation of MATH-1082. The topics of algebra, geometry and trigonometry will be extended to a deeper level while students will be introduced to the Cartesian Coordinate System, Vectors and Compound Angles. All topics will be applied to manufacturing equipment and the manufacturing process.

SCIE-1034Metallurgy and Material Science
More Information

This course covers various aspects of metallurgy, from an overview of metallurgical equipment, sample preparation, and constituent identification through to theoretical physical metallurgy. The lab component will concentrate on problem work and working with materials.

WRKE-2027Work Experience
More Information

This course will provide "hands-on" machining work experience in an industrial environment and equip them with the requisite experience, knowledge, and appreciation of the elements that factor into being a responsible worker.  Students will be assigned to a machine shop.  Each student will observe and participate in work practices under the direction of shop supervision. A report on the student's attendance, ability, general attitude, and employment potential will be provided by the workplace supervisor upon completion of the assignment. The student will receive credit for this work experience.
