Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Manufacturing Technologies
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2014
Module code: WIMASc145
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
P450-0109, P450-0111
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1V+1U+2PA (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 1
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Oral examination and project work (1:1)

WIMASc145 (P450-0109, P450-0111) Industrial Engineering, Master, ASPO 01.10.2014 , semester 1, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 180 hours (equivalent to 6 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 135 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
WIMASc215 Quality Management / Cost Management

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module students will:
_        have in-depth knowledge about selected manufacturing processes, which goes beyond the basic knowledge from the Bachelor´s program, especially in the field of forming technology and automotive engineering.
_        be able to carry out basic calculations on forces and tool loads, among other things.
_        be familiar with the holistic engineering approach to lightweight structures and can explain the connections between material, production and design in technical discussions.
_        have the methodological knowledge required for working out the technological details of manufacturing processes and be aware of their importance for the respective manufacturing process.
_        have acquired knowledge about strategies and ways of familiarizing themselves with individual technological topics through literature research, patent research and interview techniques in manufacturing operations.
