PEC University of Technology, Chandigarh, invites applications for its short term course on Advanced and Manufacturing for the academic year 2014. The programme is run by the Department of Mechanical Engineering of PEC. Students can apply online by logging on to the official website of the university.
Nowadays advanced, meso (1-10mm) and micro (1-999 μm) manufacturing are emerging as an important technology specially in the area where miniaturisation yields economic and technical benefits, namely aerospace, automotive, optical, biomedical, defence etc. areas. The advanced meso and micro manufacturing process can be applied to metal, non metals, ceramics and composites materials. In case of advanced machining processes, material is removed at micro level either by mechanical means (such as USM, AJM, MAF etc processes), thermal erosion (such as LBM, EBM, PBM etc. processes), anodic dissolution (such as CM, CM etc processes), chemical reaction or combination of two or more than two processes called hybrid machining (such as ECDM, TW-ECSM, ECSG etc processes). The basic objective of this course is to acquaint the participants with the principle, basic machine tools, development and advancement in manufacturing as well as μ-manufacturing processes and research trends in the area of advanced and μ and nanomanufacturing processes.
