Abstract

Inclusion of green energy manufacturing contents in an introductory course on manufacturing processes and systems Pengfei Zhang, Z.J. Pei Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Kansas State University Manhattan, KS 66506 AbstractIMSE 250 is an introductory course on manufacturing processes and systems at Kansas StateUniversity. In this course, various conventional and unconventional manufacturing processes arecovered, and their target workpiece materials are primarily engineering materials (includingmetals, ceramics, plastics, and composites). Green energy manufacturing is considered a newworldwide industry. Countries that take leadership positions in this industry will have a globalcompetitive advantage. To enhance the global competitiveness of the U.S. in green energymanufacturing, a great need exists for a skilled workforce that has been trained in this field. Inorder to expose Kansas State University students to green energy manufacturing, some greenenergy manufacturing contents have been added to IMSE 250 recently. This paper presents theexperience of this attempt. Students’ feedback and comments are also provided.
