Objectives of the course

The course offers students insights of subsystems of a computer integrated manufacturing system; integration of and communication between those subsystems; and modelling, planning and analysis of manufacturing systems. The course provides elementary understanding of logic and digital control systems and automation of manufacturing operations. Students will also acquire basic training in program control of machine tools.

Upon completing this course, students are expected to get the following learning outcomes:

Knowledge and understanding:

  • Theoretical and practical knowledge about basic metal-working processes.
  • Knowledge about machine tools and CNC programming.
  • Knowledge about industrial robots and manufacturing automation.
  • Basic knowledge about dimensional measurements and quality engineering.
  • Knowledge about material flow and information flow in the manufacturing industry.
  • Understanding of the fundamentals of additive manufacturing technologies


  • Be able to plan and carry out simple manufacturing processes based on product drawings.
  • Have the skills to operate different types of measurement instruments and be able to conduct basic quality control.


  • Understand the relation between product specifications and manufacturing processes.
  • Have basic knowledge about technological processes in a manufacturing company.
  • Be able to assess the potential for automation in manufacturing companies.
  • Understand the working principles of diverse additive fabrication methods.

Language of instruction and examination

The course is taught in English. Exam questions will be prepared in English, but answers in Norwegian also acceptable.
