Digital Manufacturing


English language proficiency requirements

Students registering in post-secondary level courses (numbered 100 to 499) will be required to meet the English language entrance proficiency requirements. Students in ELS or the University Foundations programs can register in those courses identified in the University Foundations program with lower levels of language proficiency.

Please note that not all courses are offered every semester.

DMFG 201

3 credits

3D Modeling

Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Digital Manufacturing diploma or department permission.

Working knowledge of common 3D modeling and design tools, such as SolidWorks, Autodesk. Introduction to dynamic modeling and simulation. Migration between various approaches and software packages. Transition to Computer Aided Manufacturing. 3D design consideration for the proper fabrication equipment (machining, 3D printing, etc). Collaboration and curation methods and practices.

DMFG 202

3 credits

Material Science and Technology

Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Digital Manufacturing diploma or department permission.

Fundamental knowledge of common materials including their physical and chemical properties. Materials handling safety such as toxicity, interactions, waste management, etc. Materials’ machinability and acceptable process. Material failure and failure modes. Engineered materials vs. natural materials. Material selection considerations.

DMFG 203

3 credits

Design for Manufacturing

Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Digital Manufacturing diploma or department permission.

Introduction to manufacturing technology. Impacts of materials and processes on industrial design choices and approaches. Process of designing or engineering a product to reduce its manufacturing cost. Manufacturability and common sense design. Manufacturing and industry standards, testing, and quality assurance.

DMFG 205

4 credits

Computer Numerical Controlled Machinery

Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Digital Manufacturing diploma or department permission.

Computer numerical control theory and operation. CNC Machine operation safety. Computer-Aided Manufacturing principles including tooling, tool path and errors. Machine coding and instruction such as G-code, and pre- and post-processing such as Minkowski geometry. Machining methods and processes.

DMFG 207

2 credits

Fabrication Technology

Prerequisite(s): Admission to the Digital Manufacturing diploma or department permission.

Introduction to common fabrication processes and associated materials including rapid prototyping technologies, non-machining processes such as welding and brazing, metal and plastic bending, forming, molding and casting. Implementation of digital fabrication processes, such as additive and subtractive manufacturing technology, CND machining, laser cutting. Investigate structural concepts and joining methods.

DMFG 210

15 credits

Project Studio

Prerequisite(s): DMFG 201, DMFG 202, DMFG 203, DMFG 205, and DMFG 207, or department permission.

An intensive studio and shop blended course that brings together the skills acquired from prerequisite Digital Manufacturing courses and the learner’s discipline-specific knowledge to complete a major digitally produced project from conception to completion (prototype). The approach will be problem-based learning, and projects can be team- or individual-based, under the direction and supervision of a faculty advisor/mentor.
