Manchester Community College Manufacturing Systems I (AMT 210)

Students will explore fluid power controls, manufacturing component capacities and functions for automated manufacturing. This will include the logic controls and setups for creating systems needed in the manufacturing production line. Discussion will include the development of individual mechanical component setups to arrive at the desired output of the mechanisms in the system. Learning activities will include the use of computer simulation and hands-on applications of an operational production component. Each mechanism will be studied as to the specifications, functions, and safe operation. Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on effective workplace skills including teamwork, integrity, and dependability. Prerequisites: ETEC110M, ADMT120M.

Quality Note:
Hezel Associates provided the 3rd party curriculum review for the AMPed NH TAACCCT grant project. Courses were reviewed for quality by Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) by assessing the (1) clarity and appropriateness of learning objectives, (2) alignment of learning objectives to course activities and materials, (3) logical sequencing of course content, (4) availability of active learning opportunities, (5) use of formative feedback for students, and (6) presence of summative assessment and its alignment with course objectives. SMEs were selected based on credentials and experience in instructional and curricular design and evaluation.
Quality of Subject Matter was assured by:
  • Participation as an ongoing member of team developing the instructional materials
  • SME Quality Report is posted in Skills Commons
Quality of Online/Hybrid Course Design assured by:
  • None
