Description: The development of an upper division elective course in manufacturing processes for a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program is presented. The development is justified via the program history and by recalling traditional manufacturing and mechanical engineering educational curricula. The course's relationship to program educational objectives, which map into ABET assessment criteria, and how the course relates to other courses in the program are presented. Specific expected educational outcomes identified for the course are also presented. The text selection process is included. The course scope, prerequisite coursework, lecture topics, content delivery methods (including multimedia tools), activity scheduling, lab component issues, and incorporation of industrial tours are addressed. Assessment of student learning via in-class exercises, short papers, tour journals, and exams is discussed. Results of a student survey concerning the first course offering are presented. The necessity of the course in light of the increasing emphasis on engineering design education and globalization is argued.
