Description: The Manufacturing Processes (ME 201) class in the Mechanical Engineering (ME) Department at Christian Brothers University (CBU) is a required course for all ME students. This class combines traditional machining, advanced machining (CNC), and rapid prototyping techniques with field trips and hands-on projects. One of the highlights of this class is the manufacturing bowl at the end of the semester. Students are divided into four groups to compete in the
knowledge of manufacturing. The winning group is selected by means of the double-elimination process. A gaming device that consists of a console and two push-button control boxes is created for the competition. Seven sets of multiple-choice questions are created in PowerPoint presentations. Prior to the end of the semester, a final project is assigned to have each group of students design their own trophy for the competition. This project illustrates students' creativity, their ability to work as a team and their manufacturing skills.

The competition serves as a review of materials covered in the class. It boosts up the interest and motivation of students in the area of manufacturing processes. The design for the gaming device is included.
