DIVISION: PHYSICAL SCIENCE & ENGINEERING
DEPARTMENT: MECHANICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY
GENERAL EDUCATION: This course does not fulfill a General Education requirement.

DESCRIPTION: A course in joining processes that includes welding, standard fasteners (nuts,bolts), non-standard fasteners (inserts, blind fasteners), adhesives, foam tapes and epoxies and other processes.
TAUGHT: Fall
CONTENT AND TOPICS: General Goals: Give the student a strong understanding of the importance of using strong engineering principles and practices in specifying fasteners and joining processes. Topics include: welding processes, fasteners, adhesives, foam tapes, and allied processes.
GOALS AND OBJECTIVES: The student will:
1. Understand the importance of using strong engineering principles and practices in specifying fasteners and joining processes.
2. Identify common screw and nut types; thread call out, strengths, mechanical properties and applications.
3. Identify common non-traditional fasteners (inserts, self-clinching, blind), and identify common applications, testing, and installation.
4. Identify common welding processes and specify a process for a specific need using correct parameters.
4. List the attributes of adhesives and foam tapes, and identify uses for these materials.
