ENCH199-18W (C) Whole Year 2018

Workshop Training Course for Chemical and Process Engineering

19 Feb 2018 - 18 Nov 2018

Description

Compulsory workshop training course for Chemical and Process Engineering students.

The purpose of Workshop Training is to give students a basic experience and appreciation of workshop processes. In particular to provide:
• Experience of basic workshop processes (drilling, turning, milling, welding, hand tools)
• Develop an appreciation of the capabilities (limitations) of these processes
• Develop an awareness of workshop safety

The skills learned will be useful for completing the degree (e.g. 3rd Pro Project), and for the student’s career. The latter because Professional Engineers are expected to be able to design parts that can be practically manufactured (i.e. design-for-manufacturing, DfM), and have intelligent problem-solving conversations with production colleagues. It is NOT necessary for a Professional Engineer to be an expert machine operator, but they do need to understand the issues and have an appreciation for the skills of others in the engineering team.  This course (or equivalent) is a mandatory part of the BE qualification.

In this course students will be taught how to safely operate various machines, and will manufacture their own simple parts.

Learning Outcomes

  • The learning outcomes will be as follows:

    Basic workshop practice
  • Understand safety requirements for engineering manufacturing workshops
  • Use an engineering vernier calliper and micrometer for measuring parts
  • Interpret a simple engineering drawing

    Basic machining practices
  • Safely use a lathe to turn a simple component
  • Safely use a milling machine to make a simple face cut
  • Apply oil quench heat treatment

    Welding workshop
  • Understand safety requirements for welding workshops
  • Use manual metal arc processes (arc welding) to make groove and fillet welds
  • Test welds, e.g. butt welds to destruction with U bend test and section cut on a bandsaw and, ( if time allows) fillet welds in destructive bend test
  • Identify typical visual weld defects and explain causes

    Note that the projects may change from time to time.  Also, the amount of time spent on the various activities varies with discipline.
    • University Graduate Attributes

      This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:

      Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award

      Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.

Pre-requisites

Timetable Note

Students must log in My Timetable to make their selection of a suitable time. Student may make only one enrolment. Students who enrol in one occurrence and subsequently wish to change to another should discuss this with their departmental coordinator beforehand if they wish to avoid attracting additional course fees.

Notes

EXEMPTIONS

Exemptions from the Workshop Training Course may be granted by the course supervisor for the Department of Chemical & Process Engineering.  Normally this will only be considered for:
• NZCE/Diploma students
• an engineering trade qualification
• equivalent course done elsewhere
• substantial formal work experience (self-taught experience in a home workshop will not usually be sufficient grounds for exemption)  

Those students who believe they may be eligible for an exemption should apply early in their first year of Professional study.

Additional Course Outline Information

Assessment and grading system

Pass criteria

In order to achieve a pass in this course, students must meet the following criteria:

• Reach a satisfactory standard in attitude and safety
o Safety is very important. Failure may occur if a student demonstrates a careless attitude towards the safety of self or others
o Engineers are expected to be professionally responsible regarding safety.  As observed by the Institute of Professional Engineers NZ, ‘Engineers have a substantial role to play as part of this activity because they are trained in cause and effect thinking, and can predict a range of likely outcomes and their consequences’

• Reach a satisfactory standard in the production of specified engineering components
o It is necessary to demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Tutor that the student is able to safely use the workshop processes (drilling, turning, milling, welding, hand tools) to a basic level
o Students will not be failed for inability to reach target manufacturing tolerances/quality, providing that the student makes a credible attempt

• Satisfactory attendance
o minimum of 32 hours (Mechanical and Mechatronic students)
o minimum of 24 hrs (CAPE students)
o minimum of 12 hrs (Civil students)

Failing is rare…but possible

Attendance

Absence:
• Prompt arrival is required for all classes.  (Students who arrive late will be marked as absent!)
• If a student knows he/she is going to be absent, then they must contact the instructor in the training room during the scheduled class 364 2987 extension 7336 as well as Ranee Hearst during business hours (369 3784, ranee.hearst@canterbury.ac.nz).  In addition the student concerned must contact the course supervisor to arrange a time when they can make up for the lost instruction and contact hours.  
• Students must attend for the whole course. Students who miss more than one hour of class must present formal notification (e.g. a doctor’s note) otherwise it is likely they will be requested to re-enrol at additional cost to themselves.

Exemptions

Exemptions from the Workshop Training Course may be granted by the course supervisor for the Department of Chemical & Process Engineering.  Normally this will only be considered for:
• NZCE/Diploma students
• an engineering trade qualification
• equivalent course done elsewhere
• substantial formal work experience (self-taught experience in a home workshop will not usually be sufficient grounds for exemption)  
Those students who believe they may be eligible for an exemption should apply early in their first year of Professional study.
