Manufacturing processes and systems
Manufacturing engineering, technology and producion systems.

Materials in manufacturing: metals, non-metals and alloys used in industrial manufacturing: structural, mechanical and manufacturing-related properties.

Manufacturing technologies and processes: fusion processes with expendable and permanent molds, plastic deformation, material removal, joining processes, micro and nano-manufacturing technologies.

Manufacturing systems: architectures and organization of manufacturing systems, flexible and rigid automation, manufacturing process control.

Metrologic inspection and verification: dimensional and geometric metrology on large scale, conventional scale, micro and nanometric scalesm; surface metrology.

Information technology for manufacturing: manufacturing process simulation; computer-aided process planning and optimization; numerical control; computer-integrated manufacturing.
