    Course Expectations, Goals & Routines

    We will follow the hand book on matters such as tardiness, attendance, use of electronics devices, respect to others, eating in class, etc.. Students will be assigned a locker and safety glasses for use in the class.  Students will be responsible for returning both at the end of class.  Students are responsible for the safe keeping of their project and belongings in class.  Students will receive a grade for daily work in the shop. This will be recorded on a weekly basis.  Students will be required to follow all safety rules and procedures given in class. Students must keep a notebook with all assignments, notes and handouts from the class.

    MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS (Individual course descriptions to follow)

    Manufacturing Systems is a course that specializes in how people use modern manufacturing systems with an introduction to manufacturing technology and its relationship to society, individuals, and the environment. An understanding of manufacturing provides a background toward developing engineering & technological literacy. This understanding is developed through the study of the two major technologies, material processing and management technology, used by all manufacturing enterprises. Activities allow students to study techniques used in identifying and obtaining resources in addition to developing an understanding of the primary and secondary processes used to convert raw materials into finished products.
