The aim of this course is to give students a basic and essential knowledge of conventional manufacturing methods.

At the end of the course students will be able to:

• know about materials and their properties
• know the different manufacturing processes
• choose a manufacturing process from the design drawing of the part and the characteristics of each process
• identify manufacturing problems caused by the manufacturing process

This course is an essential prerequisite for future industrial engineers.


Aurelie MORIN


Lectures/tutorials: 22.5 hours

  • Plastics (types, properties, uses) and moulding techniques (injection, extrusion, thermoforming)
  • Metallic materials and heat treating
  • Machining (turning, milling, grinding, gear cutting, CNC)
  • Casting metallic materials (sand-casting, die-casting, gravity, high-pressure)
  • Metal sheets (cutting, folding, stamping)
  • Casting (die-forging, sheet-metal forming, engraving, using a matrix, extrusion)
  • Cotation for design and its interpretation
  • Additive Manufacturing

Practical work: 15 hours

• Forging simulation (6 hours)
• CAM, Machining and Metrology (9 hours)

The course is set up as follows:

• First part includes lectures and tutorials on the above points.
• Second part includes practical work.


Course on "Engineering Design" (1st Year S2).
Strong link with the course "Industrialisation: from Plant to Workstation" (2nd year option course). It is interesting to choose both.


  • Written reports on tutorials (forging and CAM/machining/metrology). Modalities : no document, school calculators provided
  • 1.5 hour exam.

Session 1 :
N1 : note TP forge
N2 : note TP CAO/fabrication/métrologie
N3 : note examen
NOTE SESSION 1 = 1/3 (moyenne[N1, N2]) + 2/3 examen

Session 2 :
Epreuve de rattrapage écrite ou orale
NOTE SESSION 2 = Note épreuve de rattrapage


The course exists in the following branches:

  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master PD - Semester 8
  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master SCM - Semester 8
