|Recommended and/or required reading:|
|Planned learning activities and teaching methods||The material is mostly presented by lectures and demonstration of manufacturing methods. Student evaluation is based on assignments or mini projects, tests and final exam. Lecture notes and presentations are available through the web for students to use in combination with the textbooks. Furthermore theoretical principles are explained by means of specific examples and solution of specific problems.|
