Abstract

Incorporating Emerging and Sustainable Practices in Teaching Manufacturing Materials AbstractThis paper describes the incorporation of emerging and sustainable practices in anundergraduate engineering technology manufacturing materials course. Usually, thelaboratory component of a manufacturing materials course includes only industrial testingprocedures and experiments. The study of laboratory tests is used to characterize thematerial properties of ceramic, polymeric, and metallic materials and how these materialproperties influence material selection decisions in design and manufacturing. This paperdiscusses the development of experimental modules for providing hands-on experiencefor undergraduate students interested in emerging and sustainable issues in manufacturingmaterials. The course is intended to incorporate an in-depth overview of emergingsustainable issues in manufacturing and industrial resources to reduce the environmentalimpact of manufactured products. Green energy manufacturing is an emerging field andalso provides a sustainable development model for modern manufacturing industries.Sustainable green manufacturing encompasses the design of manufacturing processes toprioritize energy conservation, pollution prevention or reduction, and increased healthand safety of communities, employees, and consumers. In this paper, we will discuss keyadvanced technologies and environmental topics that can be integrated intomanufacturing coursework to include sustainability principles. This course has beentaught, evaluated, and reviewed to identify barriers to the inclusion of emerging issuesinto the course manufacturing materials.
