Materials and Fabrication Methods I. A Study Guide of the Science and Engineering Technician Curriculum.
Lindberg, Andrew; And Others
This study guide is part of a curriculum entitled Science and Engineering Technician (SET) Curriculum, a program of studies which integrates elements from the disciplines of chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanical technology, and electronic technology. The purpose of this national curriculum development project was to provide a framework for training technicians in the use of electronic instruments and their applications. This guide is designed to be used as a supplement to a manufacturing processes text which deals with materials properties, heat treatment, and plastics. Training in materials and fabrication methods, and in those skills which are useful in a technical laboratory environment, are provided. The following topics are included in the text: (1) measurement; (2) electrical fabrication; (3) hand tools; (4) power hand tools; (5) power bench tools; and (6) metal fabrication. (Author/SK)
