MTT3565 METALLURGY COURSE PROCEDURE


MTT3565 METALLURGY

1 Credit Hour

Student Level:

This course is open to students on the college level in either the freshman or sophomore year and to area high school vocational students.

Catalog Description:

MTT 3565 - Metallurgy (1 hr.)

Students learn the metallurgical terms and definitions in an effort to understand the behavior and service of metals in industry. Characteristics during heating, cooling, shaping, forming, and the stress related to their mechanical properties are covered, as well as the theory behind alloys, heat treatment processes and wear resistance.

Course Classification:

Lecture

Prerequisites:

None

Controlling Purpose:

Students learn the metallurgical terms and definitions in an effort to understand the behavior and service of metals in industry. Characteristics during heating, cooling, shaping, forming, and the stress related to their mechanical properties are covered, as well as the theory behind alloys, heat treatment processes and wear resistance.

Learner Outcomes:

  1. Operate machine tool equipment commonly found in industry including manual and computer controlled lathes, milling machines, drill presses and cutting machines.
  2. Manufacture parts from various materials in accordance with specifications from blueprints, electronic drawings and shop sketches.
  3. Solve quality problems using process planning, technical knowledge, teamwork, mathematics, and critical thinking.
  4. Apply safety principles in a work environment to minimize hazards and prevent losses to productivity.
  5. Demonstrate employability skills needed to obtain and retain employment in machine tool and related fields.
  6. Use CAD and CAM programs to design parts and program manufacturing machines.

Attendance Policy:

Students should adhere to the attendance policy outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Grading Policy:

The grading policy will be outlined by the instructor in the course syllabus.

Maximum class size:

Based on classroom occupancy.

Course Time Frame:

The U.S. Department of Education, Higher Learning Commission and the Kansas Board of Regents define credit hour and have specific regulations that the college must follow when developing, teaching and assessing the educational aspects of the college.  A credit hour is an amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is an institutionally-established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two hours of out-of-class student work for approximately fifteen weeks for one semester hour of credit or an equivalent amount of work over a different amount of time.  The number of semester hours of credit allowed for each distance education or blended hybrid courses shall be assigned by the college based on the amount of time needed to achieve the same course outcomes in a purely face-to-face format.
